Yes, it's used on the LSA also.  Most everyone removes it and put's a dogbone in it's place when doing a cam swap. 

But for some reason, there issues with using the dogbone with the single bolt cam gears.  Something about the chain being too loose.  It's not a problem if you go to a 3 bolt (ls3) cam sprocket.  Since that's what 95% of cam swaps are, you never hear about this issue.  I'm not sure what you're using with his vvt stuff.

That doesn't have the VVT upper gear

 

I'm not doing the job, but if I were.  I would assemble everything with your old gears and new chain, but no damper or tensioner.  If the chain has minimal slack, use this GM part number damper.

If it has a lot of slop, I don't know what you would do other than put another spring loaded tensioner in it.

Those heads should have had the block-offs in the box I believe.  :wall:

Damn!

TSP never sent me those cam phaser tables, either. Since they're closed on the weekend, I guess nothing could have been done until Monday anyway.

Heck yeah, so close you can almost smell it!!!  You endured waaaaaay too long of a wait with the parts in hand and no time or ability to install them, this small wait will be but a blink in time compared and theeeeeen........fun times begin!!!!!
