If I get the money in a year or so, is it easy to swap in a roller cam?
Reading more about all of the budget heads that i can find and looking further in to 2001Blazer4x4 suggestion, it looks like Pro-filers are pretty highly rated compared the others:
As they aren't assembled, what other parts would I need to complete them?
would that still work well with the cam i'd found:
Summit Racing® Classic Camshafts SUM-1105 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing
Or is there a better option using the pro-filer heads?
The Profilers are a great head.Even tho they are slightly higher than the budget heads,they are much better head in quality & performance.Much better.
Competition Products has a head assembly kit,or,IIRC,you can order the Profilers with all the hardware included for $125.
