Alrighty.. we know I'm not driven when working on a car and never complete a project on time.... Here'* an idea of my plan.
Gather a couple buddies. (We are like the MN crew.. there'* never too much beer in the fridge or too many hands to help.
Being that I know I can yank the motor in 4 hours flat..I'll probably do that. Make it easier to work on the various parts.
Pull the SC, LIM and valve covers, waterpump and timing cover, then oil pan. At this point I have a long block. Inspect...this is the last chance before it turns into a monster. Then..springs, oil pan, cam, new timing set, timing cover, water pump... intake manifold and new SC, valve covers.
Back in the car.. 4 hours and it'* back to running.
I've got two air hoses and all the new parts are ready to put on. Gasket cleaning on the heads etc are a snap with 3M scotchbrite pads aka cookies on the right angle die grinder.
My local GP guys did a cam swap like this in a regal. They started at night and it was done (including hangovers) by the middle of the next day. Difference is ...I'll probably pull the motor, it'* not required though.
My assumption is 4 hours to pull and 4 to put back in. Maybe a day or two of work on the engine stand. Three days max and it'* back together and drivable. A few miles back and forth to work to break it in, a couple oil changes and poof. It'* ready.
Biggest obstacle at the moment is the tuner.... it'* a costly one.
