    cheap cam for ls1

    hi all,

    i live in Australia, i am just chasing a cheap ls1 cam for my vx ss Commodore.
    i don't mind having to import one if i can get it cheaper from America. plus i am sure over there you have a wider range then what we do here in oz.

    any help would be appreciated

    thanks all

    I haven't seen anything "cheap" they normally run $3-400usd Texas speed sells kits for about $600usd. You can try there.

    Yeah they all pretty much cost the same. Used would be the best deal.

    All cams are generally priced the same, unless its a custon grind. Cheapest your looking at is probably a LS6..Can always go used.

    Do not buy a used a cam. Its a couple hundred dollar expense vs your time and agrivation. I personally would never trust a used cam in my engine. Ill spend the 400 dollars and not the risk of buying joe blows used cam.

    I got my cam and heads from Texas Speed also. The price of the cam was very reasonable.
