lol. When you do spray I'd really be interested to see how that worked for you. Doubt I will ever but it would be cool to see a vid on that.

I see that you have a qc so you'll want a cam that is ground for tq (vs hp)...and it's all dependent too on how much tuning you can do with it...are you lookin for something that is pcm friendly (or using superchips) or more aggressive which may require custom tuning (using diablo or sct)...I'm running the Spartan cam (214/218 @113 lsa) from Inertia Motorsports...that cam is more of a mid range cam so what I did was change gears, tq converter so as to not lose low end plus give me excellent performance up top.. of the top five (1/4 mile) qc's (hemi stockblock).. 2 (#1 an #5) of them are using the Spartan, #2 is a Spartan Max, #3 is a Hellfire cam, #4 is a Comp 268. Of the qc's sprayin, #1 (12.02) and #3 are runnin Spartan cams..

you will need cam, 6.1 springs (all exhaust), 6.1 pushrods, cam bolt, oil, oil filter, coolant...maybe head gaskets if you pull heads for spring swaps (how i've done swaps)... labor cost depends who does it for you, I've done my own swaps (twice) as well as about 25 others for guys living local to me... if you let me know the city you live in (or by), I might be able to find a forum guy in your area that can do it..
