    What other parts are needed for cam install?

    I'm leaning towards a MS3 cam for a daily driver. Car has 80k miles and is an auto. I'd just like to do a basic install and was wanting to know what other internal engine parts I will need to purchase. After cam, extra parts, install and tune, what does the price usually end up being?

    With 80k miles it is a good idea to do some preventative maintenance while you are in there. These are just ballpark figures...

    Camshaft - ~$400
    New timing set - ~$100-$150
    Gasket set (front cover, water pump, valve covers, etc) - ~ $60
    Valvesprings - ~$200
    Valve stem seals - ~$40
    New hardened pushrods - ~$100
    Oil pump (Do not forget o-ring) - ~$100
    New crank bolt - ~$5
    Gallon of coolant - ~ $5
    Oil & filter - ~$20

    Prices of install vary from $250-$400.

    Price of a tune varies also, $200-$500.

    So depending on how many internal pieces to plan to replace, you can look forward to spending about $1k or so on parts...
