Exclamation Miles driven since cam swap

So it seems like for the most part that most of the members here have already done basic bolt ons and now it seems like alot of people are wanting a cam and or heads, so thought Id try to get some info for those looking for a cam. For all those that have a cam please post how many miles you've put on the car since the swap and its drivability, how you like it, specs, ect.....you know stuff like that.

Thx alot for guys that do post
Casey

I travel ALLOT...that's why it's not driven that much...spends more time at the airport than anywhere else. And when I'm home, I work out of a home office...so my commute is from the kitchen to the guest bedroom/office
