Cams from TL-S, RL, MDX...what to do about install?

got a great deal on these from thisaznboi88...thanks again!


i was pumped to get these installed until i found out the Labor involved :frown


my guy who does most of the big stuff that i choose to let a professional handle, Timing Belt, A/C, etc. says i should wait until my next Timing Belt/Water Pump/etc. because Labor involved would run around $300-400 if i removed Timing Belt myself

so logically it makes sense to get them put in along w/the Timing Belt @ 300K and hopefully save $300-400 for install or 45,000 Miles for me


anyone got any ideas how i could get them in sooner because i do put a good deal of miles but another 45,000 miles would be another 2-3 years based on current driving patterns

2 options.

1. Go ahead and change the timing belt and get those cams installed.

2. If you have not ported the top end, save up and plan to have the porting job done 2 or 3 years down the road along with the cam swap during the timing belt job. Doing all of that work at one time will save some cost on labor.
