    When I did the install in my own garage, total of parts was just over $1000.


    Labor shouldn't be that much. $600 is much closer.

    Price on parts is a bit high, I got z06 cam, Ti retainers, 918 springs, hardened pushrods et all for 750 shipped. Guess it depends on which rockers but 650 for a set is a bit much, just my 02.
