    I'm afraid I'd screw it up. Plus I don't have any tools since I moved to my apartment. I'm just gonna call around and get more estimates.

    Nope. The only thing that you would need to replace is the springs and possibly new gears if you feel like it.

    What's killing you is our engines location.. We sit deeper than LS1, and are as cramped if not more back there. Nearly all our engine work happens under the cowl.. However a compitant tech sould be down to a 3800 valley in minutes.. I sure can (smittro NOT a tech) so should they.. But yes shop around.. Time quote for doing the timing belt on my other v6 is ~8hrs @ a shop.. I do it in 1hr... I can see if it includes a dyno tune but the quote is nutz just for install labor which that all is..

    Just as a comparison.. when I first looked into doing a cam in mine, a local shop in Charlotte that specializes in f-bodies quoted me 1200 in labor... and that would have been with me putting out 800 in parts beforehand. I also spoke with another qualified shop around the same time and they quoted 750 with me supplying parts. So with that being said.. shop around!!!!
