All the support tools are needed when owning a shitbox. That's the law of cars.

Buy tools or upgrade out of having a shitbox. You'll find life gets easier.
Shame there isn't a place that rents trucks for under $20...

Safe to say there's only 46k miles on this recently rebuilt motor ?...Could I have possibly caused that much wear on the lifters and cam lobes in only less than 5k of driving this motor 46k rebuilt motor ?

I've read mixed reviews on cam bearing wear, some have ran worse and still running strong years after the fact. Another indication that the cam bearings are badly worn is low or no oil pressure...I've never had an issue with oil pressure, or never been advised that I do as many videos as I have uploaded and shared of me driving the car with the camera focused on my gauges, including the oil gauge.

i'm going to take my chances on the cam bearings and run them...but what do you see that makes them look bad ?... and are they bad enough that I shouldn't run them ?
There is no got dang way that engine has 46k miles on it. None. Unless you have receipts, and you drove those 46k miles on that engine, the PO fed you a line of bullshit and you ate every last bite.

I can tell the cam bearings are bad by how they look... bad... but don't just take my advice. Shoot a pic over to comp cams, since you're going to blow a load of money on their kit anyways... see what they say about your bearings. But you'll probably ignore them, too.

At this point, I'm really wondering why you keep coming back here... you've obviously pissed off most of the people here and ignore the good, honest advice you've been given. Maybe it's time you find another forum to leech off of, if you can't wisen up and listen to the people here trying to help you.

Lol those clapped out Cam Bearings are what normal LS Engine ones look like, if it was one of them it would be fine.

Some of us aren't pissed off, I'm here for the entertainment at this point.

Purely in the aspect of the "I left the Facebook groups because all the admins are *ssh*les and I proved them wrong".

The threads this guy posts up clearly show where "the admins" were proved wrong..👀

Pretty bold of you to assume I don't lol...our stop lights here snap shots of your tag and run it for insurance verification...been driving this car all over town...
that would be illegal in most places. even the cop cars scanning license plates while driving around have been found to be illegal in some cases
