Hotrod cams

So I just purchased a set of hotrod cams for my 06 GT. I plan on installing them myself this weekend. How hard is the install and will I be able to do it alone? I've got new cam phaser bolts, but I'm not using a spring compressor and I'll use a substitute for the chain wedge. Also, can these cams be used on the car with out a tune? How drastic is the difference between tune and no tune ?

I got the install instructions from American muscle followed them word for word. I was done in about 5 hrs , it's easy to do it alone just take your time. The only thing is I lost my cam phasers about 3 weeks later. I had mine tuned , don't know if I needs to be.

Just driving it started to miss like it was a fouled plug . So plugged in my tuner to find the code , it came up cam timing sensors. Read about it saying chains jumped . I take the front cover off they didn't jump. Buy new phasers and notice the springs on both were broke on the originals. Someone on the forum said you have to get new phasers when you put in hot rod cams. Shes running good since.

Oh man that sucks. I'm sorry. Well hopefully my phasers don't **** out on me but if they do, what brand did you get to replace them and how much do they cost?

@natestang07
Are you talking about the phasers themselves or the bolts? Cause I have new bolts

The bolts. Depending on miles your phasers shouldn't be bad
