To make it easier you'd want Romeo cams and the Ford special tool that prevents you from having to remove the front cover. I used to have one of those tools but I loaned it to Sir William and never got it back. Maybe you can contact him about borrowing a tool, he obviously has one.

Timing chain holder, search for wedge.
there is a ford (rotunda) one and an anderson motorsports version.
PI intake is no taller than npi above the mount, just the plenum box below.

As stated earlier, Romeo cams. With the tool mentioned you don't have to pull the front cover.

You don't have to change any of the springs or valves, but I'm not sure about how to get the springs out from under the cam and vice versa. Any help on that?

I kept searching eBay for the part number of the Ford one, and bought the Rotunda toolkit (and noticed a couple others like the IRS setup kit) that contains it.

Off and on you will see them for sale here and other modular motor sites, one just sold within the last month or so.

PI cams and intake don't require a chip, but a chip will allow you to get maximum benefit from them.

Yeah, second one, I have the previous version of that, and the new one looks both better, and more disposible.

This is the one I got.

Dude, goto your local vatozone and ask for the lend a tool and see if they have it. They should have it locally too. I think checker auto parts also has that program where they lend the tool.

Might try this site.

Click on "Anderson Products" then scroll down to the bottom and look for "Cam Chain Retention Tool".

There is also a very good article on the site on how to use the tool to change out the cams.
