To the wheels? Because reguardless 200-300 bucks and a weekend of my time seems well worth it, just don't wanna dig into the heads. How hard is it to swap the npi cams to pi while doing the intake? Heard it gives another 15-20 as well.

Cams wouldn't be too difficult. Just got to know what your doing. The intake is easy. It took me about 4 hours to disassemble down to the point where the cams can be removed

I've got alot of mechanical know how, are there any good write ups or guides on how to swap the cams at the same time as the intake? Also should I but new or used cams?

New is always better. Here's a pic of what has to be done to the ports before putting on the intake

Just stock pi cams unless you do the full pi swap. Then look into comp cams

Look up on ebay for a pi intake swap kit. You need a few extra things
