Is swapping the timing chain in a '97 Z71 with a 5.7L the same as the regular smallblock,meaning do you still have to remove the front set of oilpan bolts to pull off the timing chain cover?Any tips are welcome.

Yes it's pretty much the same as earlier engines except for the crank position sensor and the plastic timing cover.

Never done it, you may need to drop it a little farther because of the plastic cover.

The cover can be replaced with a steel or aluminum one too if you don't need the sensor.
