Does anyone know if it the engine cover comes off without realising the chain tension?
yeah, you need to release the chain tension to get the chain off of the cam gears. If your buddy doesn't have the cam alignment tool you should wait until you get one to do the install.

You will find you need cam bar that fits the back of the cams when you have the motor atdc & w/ that the #1 cam lobes should be pointing towards each other. The back of the cam slots are off set, so w/ that cam bar laying across the back of the head & into the cam slots it only fits one way & w/ the pass tire off. Use a timing peg= to keep the crank from spinning clockwise & then you you rolling the exhaust cam backwards w/ a wrench in the flats of the cam & shove a 3/16 drill bit thru the timing cover after removing a plug to keep the guide tensoiner from retracting. & then use 2 wrenches to bust the cam sprocket bolts lose. I used two tye wraps around the exhaust sprocket to the chain & undid the exhaust sprocket bolt & the intake one comes out when you pull the intake cam out. Install the intake sprocket on the new intake cam. I marked the cam caps on one side to keep them in order. The exhaust cam in next & put the sprocket on & tighten up the bolt's w/ the preveis two wrenches & put the timing bar in the back of the cams to make sure the cams are in time. For me its easier to do that to explain. Its fairley simple, just need to make sure the cams & crank are in time w/ one another. You'll enjoy the midrange grunt. I installed my crane cams last monday.
dude we need some vids no idle vids hate them!!!! 0-60 25-70 lets see some pull vids man i cant find any i am going to get cams this summer if the stage 1s pull hard unuf ill go with them but i might take the plunge with the stage 2s GET SOME VIDS IM DIEING TO SEE

Right now I am just trying to find a weekend mechanic who will install it at his house or somthing.

There are a few Magna flow mufflers that fit behind the flex & yes 6'' diameter mufflers fit, which is the diameter of the stealth. It'll sound great don't sweat it, I'd be adding a desent muffler or mufflers like Magna-flow.

The cams will add a different tone= you have the valves hanging open longer w/ some overlap.
