I hope to hell cam and converter with a 275 drag radial gets me a 12 anything lol....then I will spray it into a high 11 and be happy as a pig in sht...!
Is that price from the US? UPS or US mail?
how much was the UPS broker fee? US mail service- Canada post is a lot cheaper. You pick it up at your local post office.
Usually a shoppers drug mart nearest your house.

Did you try sourcing that cam and the lifters locally?
Starting at your local CTC parts counter. (you'd be suprised)
Next stop would be your local auto machine shop thats hooked up with Motorstate.
They can get all this stuff. pays to shop around.

You won't need to take any gear out of the car. just put the good Isky valve springs on, when you are ready to do that.
It will rpm and MPH for you. Thats the whole idea of the solid cam. The 4.11's are just right.
