    Anyone ever use the Anderson tool to install Cams? How much of a pain in the ass is it to install cams in a 2v? I have done cams in foxes but not a modular.

    I have done it to a friends car with the Anderson Tool. Its a POS, we bent it but it worked. I would only use it for a stock PI cam upgrade because they don't need to be degreed. If your installing anything else you should remove the timing cover and do it right.

    It would be for stock PI cams. I did not know that they did not need to be degreed.

    yeah if its the stock pi cams you don't have to degree them, not enough lift to cause ptv...thats as long as you don't skip a tooth or anything while installing. Ford actually has a similar tool as the Anderson but its much better made but also more money.

    Yes,you don't have to degree stock PI cams not a chance of
    getting PTV contact just make sure you don't skip a tooth
    and you will be fine.Also the stock PI cams are a mild cam
    just for your information.From my experience the Anderson Ford Motorsports
    cam tool worked wonders for me and made the install alot easier.
    The Ford cam tool is over a hundred dollars and does the same
    job as the AFM cam tool.I belive it takes about three or four hours
    to take off the front timing cover and put it all back together.

    I can verify the time of removing and reinstalling the front timing cover is indeed 3-4 hours. For me anyway. Total job took me about 10 hours start to finish. Wish I know about the Cam tool.
