1990 Chevrolet Corvette Q&A

1990 Chevrolet Corvette Question: Replace cam shaft

Car is actually a 1969 350/350 corvette, manual trans, no air, no power steer. Engine was rebuilt prior to me and I dislike the "wild" cam in the rebuild. Want more of a stock cam w/ proper valve springs etc. Looking for idea on parts / labor $ I'm looking at. Thanks, Tom -
Answer 1
you can get nice cam kits from different manufactures. they come with cam, lifters, springs and all gaskets. they range from 300-600 depending on brand. labor on the other hand runs about 9 hours for the cam and an additional 4-5 hours for the springs, which can be done without removing the heads. make sure you find a good performance shop to do this if you are not going to do it yourself.
