Remove the accessories i.e p/s a/c etc. Remove crank pulley remove valve covers. Remove the timing cover. Undo the chains and then after that remove the bearing caps off the cams and vuola out with the old. However....... what stage u putting in? Do you have adjustable cam gears with the cams. Are yours romeo or windsor cams? A bunch of questions will be asked first on what and y u are changing cams.

Even really lumpy modular cams usually don't get cray cray like that, was it an Edge? I've heard some SICK pushrods though.

Going to be quite a lot. $1k DIY with all the extra stuff you'll need besides the $600 cams... maybe more. If you are getting them installed professionally then prepare thy anus...

This isn't like a pushrod where you buy a $100 used TFS cam off the Corral and install it in an afternoon "dot to dot" and then get another $100 set of new pushrods to match it. Although you really should degree the pushrod cams too. Last one I did was installed "dot to dot" and then verified with a degree wheel and it wound up being spot on. I've had them not be tho.

You can do a lot of other **** to your car for the money... if you don't have gears/suspension/exhaust that is stuff to take care of first.

Also you can put a S trim on that car for the same price it would cost to do the cams professionally and you'll go way faster while retaining the stock street manners. Either route requires a tune so that's a wash.

Get stage 2 regrinds. They are stock cams that have been regrinded. You can re use cam springs and cam gears with them. Ortiz Performance does them, they are pretty good cams. Only $450

I don't know how reliable or good those are but I think I'd rather spend an extra $200 for new comp cams.

They're just fine. MHS used to do regrinds too when they were doing the Recession Buster combos.
