I got the Cam package from Texas Speed for around $600 maybe...? It comes with cam, springs, and pushrods. Then to install the cam, LT headers and dyno tune was $2100.

You are going to need the cam, springs to match and hardened pushrods. Then you will need gaskets and coolant, oil filter and change of oil, front seal maybe.

Most cam packages with cams under .600 lift are in the $600 range but when you add double springs the price jumps up a little bit.

I do cam swaps for about $1600 tuned (includes cam package)

That is a very good price too bad you're not more centrally located.

Holy carp, Batman!

What do you get to do a stage 2 blower cam installed on an L99 with an LS3 conversion? You can pm me if that would be better.

For $1.6K I could fly to your shop, stay at a 5 star hotel, and still save a ton on what I was quoted for a cam job. Which by the way was $3.6K
