    Sure, lots of guys have cam only cars. Upgrade the valvetrain with the proper springs, pushrods etc. Most replace the oil pump and timing chain as well.

    Yep. I did Cam only, no heads. If you can afford it though, it's a great time to do both, and get one tune.

    exactly...

    I did it that way

    cam
    springs
    oil pump
    push rods
    double roller timing chain.

    I would have bought heads, at the same time however I knew I was going to switch from NA to FI, and would be buying FI heads...
