Camshafts Question

How hard and how much does it cost to do the camshaft swap for our cars? Is it a major difference in power?

Thanks so much

What you need is injectors to actually supply more fuel, or all you're doing is screwing up the fuel mixing and leaning it out.

More +? What do you mean? Bigger injectors might be ncessary to get enough fuel to the cylinders so it doesn't burn lean with the new extra air due to the better camshafts. You can't slap bigger injectors in your car and increase power, they allow you to tune and get more power from mods safely.
