Dumb question but I want to know if a cam can be installed in the 6.1 without removing the heads? I know it can be done on the 5.7. The manual says the heads must be removed on the 6.1 but is that true????

I am not 100% positive, but they should have the same lifter guides with the retainers in them. The lifters should stay up after you take the pushrods out and rotate the cam a few times.

yes it can be done,just did one today.Be very,VERY careful though.....if a lifter slips into the block you WILL be pulling the motor.
