Default camshaft replacement

So i've started reading through the process, from some of the info i have gleamed it looks straight forward, out with the old in with the new... but then i see a comment that the injectors need to be reset... dial gauge and fancy rotation process....

Is everyone who replaces their BHW camshaft also doing this? or if all we do is pull the rocker shaft, the may not be necessary?

comments please.

I used the BEW kit which Bora sells. Supposed it is supposed to last longer with very little reduction in power.
I also used the break in oil and procedure that they recommend.

So you don't need the dial. I just did my lash with one and the duration is so long you can look at the cam while ur doing it and get it 100%. That said, it does take some of the human factor out of it.
