Who here has cams?

I'm thinking of adding cams and other internals to the Parts Guide soon... just trying to gauge how many people actually have them.

Probably not many. There are very few available right now. The only one that comes to mind is the regrind set from Cobb that runs up to about $800. :eek:

I know that Web makes cams for the WRX as well, I just don't know of any vendors right off hand.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

<------ Click to see what I'm workin' with. ;)

What do you mean? We're not a retailer so I couldn't really offer much in the way of discounts.

Now that there's more on the market I'll really have to start adding it to the catalog.

cams!!! THE PRICE OF CAMS is not that bad but the cost of install is close to $2000 that is just crazy, and for the power you gain about 20whp is not worth the cost at all, use the 3 grand and get a turbo and a new tmic and get up to 100whp depending the turbo and what the boost is set to!

No one here is contemplating camshafts with the stock turbo, all of these people are pretty far along on the mod path...and $2000 for labor is robbery, go to a different shop, or do it yourself.
