A small poll

Who would be interested in a guide/tutorial of the removal teardown and rebuild of a 5.7l out of my 2006 commander got to rebuild it anyways and figured a group of people in the forum could find some useful help in the teardown process and maybe get a few laughs at my mistakes would be pictures and tools required at all the steps. Any feedback on this idea would be appreciated

I think it's a great idea Joe, I'm sure the forum would benefit from it.

That sounds like quite a laundry list....

How much more would it be just to buy a long block, and have maybe a 36 month warranty with it. But yes, a guide/tutorial would be awesome.

No gear drive that I know of. There are some double rollers available but you may have to clearance for them. Head studs are big bucks. Mains aren't too bad. A cam will require a tuner that can do custom tuning like a T1000. A better investment over a valve change is change out the powder metal seats and prevent the dreaded dropped vlave seat. The intakes are not really in need of an upgrade. The exhaust would be the first choice as it would bring it closer to optimal intake to exhaust ratio.
