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.
440 for a flat cam does seem very high. Dont pay retail. Somone will sell it cheaper. Even if you have to call them and beg for dealer price someone will give you some kind of discount if you talk nice to them. That just seems to steep. Like the suggested retail price they never use in the store. Try jegs if nothing else.
