Did u just pull those cams out or did u buy that tool from pelican, or dealer? Interested to know since I may be rebuilding my head and I know u do not just pull them out as u would a solid cam. Less tossing of course.

Looks to be good investment, didn't get mine that cheap but cheap enough for how well she runs.

You still need engine, trans, radiator, accessories, etc. plus a bunch of labor. It would still be awesome to have that power plus reliability though - GM did it right with those motors!
If you bought the car for $300, spent $4800 on the kit, and then another $4k on the engine/trans/etc, you'd still be at $9k for a LS1 E36

I'd do it if I found a shell cheap enough...
