Cam change ?? Check rockers first...
Yes you can change cam in car BUT you need to take "everything" out of the way on the front. Being that these engines feed through the valve system lifters maybe o/k but I'd check the rockers first from memory they are 1:7 ratio and wear quite easily and is easy to fix.Just a matter of taking valve covers off undo rocker and check the alloy fulcram where it contacts the rocker is where they wear.Was reasonably cheap to replace.Iff you are replacing cam it's best to replace lifters as well, not just for the hydrolic side[valve adjustment] but for break in new cam, lifter is on slight bevel so lifter turns as is the lobe on cam..So they work[wear] in together... hth...
To break cam in idle at around 1800 for 20 min.. then leave to cool motor say over night.Done..
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
