Into year four of ownership, almost 43K miles and at least a few posts about it, performance cams are finally going to be a reality.
I've got to pull in @broggyr
to this. Mags, Broggy and I have been going back and forth on cams for a long time....whether or not adding cams was worth the cost or if extra performance was even a safe thing to do(especially for me...). We always thought it was going to be a "drop off at Lloydz" job, which for us would be cams, install and tune at ~$1300. Enter roboots, who was nice enough to offer help and tools for a self installation, even maps for the tune. Also, he gave me much of his time answering questions and helping me decide what to get. This brought the cost to a point I could afford now. I was still iffy about the installation and holding back. Then I came across the vid. below, once I saw for myself what the job actually entails I knew it was something I could handle. I passed the vid on to broggy, who must have thought the same thing, because next thing I know he's like a wild man over cams(I'm a bad influence
) and ended up purchasing a set of S&S Stage2 cams he got a killer deal on(we won't talk anymore about this....
). Hell, now my hand was kind of forced, after much research I found the right deal on Lloydz HOH-VM1-DR cams.
Broggy and I are having a cam party in his garage as soon as we have our parts and can work the time out. Mags is waiting in the wings to see how this goes.
Huge thanks to Jim Langton for making this vid
