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

i think i spent like 700

did it myself

if you tell us your location, we might be able to tell you where a good local shop would be

or if you are really lucky, you might find a couple of people on here who will do it for a case of beer and a pizza.

I was quoted 3700 for a CAI, headers and cam package installed and dyno tuned. If it wasn't for the dam 9.5% chicagoland sales tax it'd be a little better. They said I should be around 450 at the wheels with that?? I already have a muffler delete.

Here is the link to the cam package from Texas Speed. http://texas-speed.com/shop/item.asp...=1059&catid=49 I was in the same boat as you, didn't know about cams(still don't really) but I called down there and spoke with someone who was very helpful. I told them what my end goal was and they recommended a package from that. And the price is $700 not $600 like I remembered. The cam isn't whats expensive its the install. Like my wife said, "holy sh*t that much? The installs twice as much as the part" Next 20 minutes were spent explaining why.

My shop charges $500 labor for a cam install and $350 for a tune. We think anymore is just too much. Maybe thats why we install more cams then any other shop in our area.
