Swap Cams With Ease on Your Gen IV LS Motor

Finally, changing camshafts on a Gen IV LS engine has become a process that’s simpler to pull off. This sweet new two-piece billet timing cover from Hamburger’s Performance makes the job substantially quicker, and saves your sanity in the process.

Official Release:

The GM LS family of engines has quickly become the hottest powerplant in the aftermarket thanks to its light weight, plentiful numbers, and near-infinite power potential. Drag racers, hot rodders and tuners alike all know that aftermarket camshafts and valvetrain adjustments are the keys to extracting every last bit of power from the LS engine family. Until now, swapping cams or adjusting advance traditionally required removal of the entire pulley system and oil pan. Thanks to Hamburger’s Performance Products’ new two-piece billet timing cover with cam sensor mount, performing a cam swap or adjustment on the newest Gen IV LS motors is a breeze.

The two-piece design of Hamburger’s new billet timing cover for Gen IV LS engines allows the upper portion of the cover to be removed for cam changes or tuning, while the lower half stays bolted to the front of the block preserving the main seal. You’ll never need to drop the oil pan to access the cam and the unit incorporates an o-ring seal into the bottom half of the cover that mates with the smoothly machined flange on the upper section to offer a leak-free seal.

Machined out of a single block of 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum and clear anodized for an attractive, reliable finish, the Hamburger’s #1105 Two-Piece LS Timing Cover is compatible with all Gen IV LS engines with front cam sensor, except for engines equipped with Variable Cam Timing or Displacement on Demand. Hamburger’s LS Timing Covers work with double roller timing chains, include all necessary stainless steel hardware, and are made in the USA. For owners of Gen III LS engines withe rear cam sensors, Hamburger’s has you covered as well with the #1104 timing cover.
