    Valve Train upgrade/Install difficulty

    How difficult is it to install the high rev valve train stuff?

    Do you have to have spring compressors?

    Do you have to degree the cams again?

    I'm considering upgrading so I can run an aftermarket ECU and higher rpms.

    Please advise.

    its pretty easy if you take your time, get one of those magnet sticks that looks like a pen and some marine greese too.....the riva valvetrain tool is what you will need for installation. just make sure the keepers are put back in correctly before you loosen the spring tension.

    You have to use the Riva valvetrain upgrade tool if you install the valvetrain upgrade with the head installed. It's really very easy.

    No, the cam never comes off the chain when doing the upgrade.


    Here are the installation instructions
