What is hours to change cam on M8
« on: January 13, 2019, 06:26:57 PM »

Curious what is the hours it takes to change out a cam on a M8. Went by a indy dealer & they said 9 hours to do job. This was also changing the cam bearings also.. Seems like a lot of hours to do job..

I was going to speculate it was an all-day job, so nine seems about right.

About 6 hours including bearing change if cutting the old pushrods out. about 8 with rocker removal.

It takes me 4.5 to 5 hours with lifter change and cam bearing.....(cut out stock push rods)
7.5 to 8 hours taking rocker boxes off.

Stock exhaust vs 2-1 can be about an hour.
