    GO or NO????

    i talked to a guy thats parting out a 02 z and he said that he will sell me a pair of hooker lt's, a 05 z06 cam with valve springs to match thats brand new, a passenger side window switch ( i broke the little clip on the left side when replacing my speaker), and a slp lid for 500 bucks

    yes? no? maybe what do you all think?

    Decent price.
    If the cam wasn't so damn small. LS6 cam honestly isn't worth the install price...don't get much out of it.

    thats what i was thinking he said that they give the car a little bit but i figured that if it was a true stock cam that it would not even have a lope

    would it not be worth the cam kit at least what i would pay in labor to install it?

    $1000+ more than likely to have it installed.

    NOT worth 20RWHP.
    And yeah...not much lope....if any.

    Most 'off-the-shelf' grinds are $375-$400. Then valvesprings, pushrods, oil pump, install.
    Highly recommend a cam that would wake the motor up. The LS6 is an increase in performance, but not with what you pay for install.

    You need to dig a little deeper on their site I think.
    You can get to a page where it lists several different grinds.

    All of them are currently $374.99

    Texas Speed 224R Camshaft
    TSP XS Series Camshaft: 224/224, .581"/.581" Camshaft With Your Choice of Lobe Separation.
    More Detail
    Thunder Racing also has a great mid-range cam that works well.
    The TR224

    Install isn't terrible.

    With the right tools I am sure I could do it in 6-8 hours with a little help. Maybe even faster.
    Just take your time. Give yourself a weekend to do in case something happens.
