Replace cam shaft

(1990 Chevrolet Corvette)
in Le Claire, IA on May 03, 2011
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

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.
