2002 V6 installing a Cam

How hard would it be to install a cam on my 2002 V6? Anyone have a tutorial? Thanks!

What cam do you plan on getting? Some cams just sound good and do not have performance gains. What do you want out of your cam?

You can also call Jegs and get a Comp cam
The 214/224 cam does not give you performance gains and does not need springs and rockers just a tune. You are paying for the sound.
The 218/226 is also sold at Jegs for a more reasonable price. But it requires springs, tune, and rocker arms. Jegs sells rocker arms but they are only $100 cheaper when you leave the machine shop. A good cam imo is worth the performance gains. Most people recommend starting in the engine producing power, unlike me. I'M doing mine one piece at the time the price adds up.
I can not recommend you another Jegs cam. You need to call.What cam do you like?

I can get you a custom regrind cam, I'm a dealer for Ortiz Performance and we do regrinds for all sorts of applications, 2V/4V V8 sixxers etc.

It's 250 plus core charge (we can get one for you or you can send one in)

As for install it's actually not that bad, Chiltons/Haynes manual will give you a good run down of the actual install, just need to learn how to measure for pushrod length is the hardest part.

The "no springs required" cams don't gain much performance because they only have .46 lift which stock is like .44X lift.

Sorry David forgot about you having the best cams for the best price! You can utube "pushrod length checker Comp cams" buy a pushrod measure and you can skip the math.

Hey, I put power down with my sports bike, with one wheel
Lol
Yeah, I'm trying, I was going on by your posi kit, but I think my rear end is finally going out, so I think I'm just going to buy one of my buddies GT rear ends
He's had two GT's, one has a blown up motor, the other one got hit in the front, he said any parts you want, come get it, I was trying to snag a GT engine, but he's destroyed them both
