Cam install help

I've previously asked in a thread what all I needed for a cam in my 5.0 and thanks to Trojan, that question was answered and my hopes of a cammed fox given life.

Now, I need to know everything I'm going to need for a successful install. I know I'm going to need

two separate oil changes

Various gaskets,

Timing light

But that's as much as I know I'll need. If anyone could show further light on this, it'd be greatly appreciated.

I would get a new timing chain if the old one is loose and some pb blaster... That's all that comes to my mind right now

Provided your taking your heads off to do the install, I would also buy new head bolts if you haven't already.
