Hey what's up guys? I need some of you guys expertise. I'm thinking of getting a cam put in my 2013 cross country. I was wondering is there anything special I need to do with the setup I have. I have the ness big honkers with the Vic bagger filters and a vcf 3 fuel manager. Also how much more power will I get from a cam and what's the price of it.
Thanks in advance

You'll need to retune. I can't give you a HP and torque number but I can tell you that you'll feel the difference. If you have some mechanical ability, do the cams yourself. It's not that hard of a job.

There are a few options but the best bang for the buck is the drop in cams. It doesn't require any clearancing of the carrier, doesn't require springs or head removal. The drop in cams gives you great power and only requires 3hrs of labor. (If your dealer is quoting engine removal, they don't know what they're doing) The part number for the drop in cams is right below in my signature. You can order them right here http://www.lloydz.com/store/item_view.asp?estore_itemid=1000025

with cams you should be in the 100 horse range. You can buy cams from lloydz kevinx Rylan or kyle. The VFC111 might not be good enough for cams so you would want the PCV and you'll need a dyno tune
Not knowing where you like but your should go to one of the four above to get the best job possible

The VFCIII is good enough for cams, the PCV is a better tuner

Would help to know the area / region you live.
With the money you spent and will spend, contact a Loydz shop. In RI / New England you can contact http://www.kmcpowersports.com he also travels the country doing installs at numerous bike events.

Cams will allow the engine to breathe way out past the stock 5500 rpm rev limit.
You need a means to increase the rev limit to take advantage of the power the cams unleash. If you intend to keep the VFC-III, you can send the ECU to Lloydz for recalibration.

I got a quote of $1900 for the cams, lloyds timing wheel, and the power commander 5. Do you guys think that's a fair price?

Shoot I gave more than that for a complete wheel package. That seems pretty reasonable to me for the power you will gain. cheers
