Is it possible to install a cam in a 77 Camaro without pulling the engine? The car is an A/C car, so the radiator and condensor must be removed. How much disassembly is necessary? I am looking for a little low-end umph and a little snappier acceleration ... Thanks, sdt

Yes, it can be done. Radiator comes out, and the a/c condensor has to lifted out of the way. You may also have to femove the crossbraces in front of the rad /condensor depending on the car, it's very close. I did it on my 79 Z28 with a/c without removing the engine or disconnecting the a/c condenser, and the crossbraces stayed in place....just barely cleared.
