anyone put cams in their '11 or '12 5.0?

Hey guys, just curious if anyone of you has swapped the cams themselves on the new 5.0? I have done a few cam changes on LS motors and on my harley sportster and they were cake. But I was looking through the article on the American Muscle site about installing the Comp cams and holy turds!! 8 different cam & crank positions?! Plus the phasers and two mini chains along with the two large chains?!! I was slightly overwhelmed and confused. It would probably make more sense to me if I was actually tearing into it. So I was wondering if you have done them, how long did it take and what was the difficulty level? Also are there any special tools needed? I'm not thinking of doing it anytime soon but in the future maybe. Always like to save on labor and get more experience on things I haven't done yet, plus you can tell your buddies "yea, I did it myself"!

Life's a garden, dig it

If don't have experience doing modular engines take it some where. If you can find a place that will let you watch or even help that would be better. They are a pain in the rear.
