Found this today: have regrind cams available...

The stock cams provide about 185 degrees intake duration @ .050, 193 degrees exhaust duration @ .050, .472 valve lift with 116 degree lobe separation. We have regrinds available now that look like this: intake duration 211 degrees @ .050, exhaust duration 211 degrees @ .050 lift, intake valve lift .500, exhaust valve lift .500, lobe separation 112 degrees.

550.00 a set with a 125.00 core

Also found that they are selling head studs for 375.00 and selling Fordged Wiseco pistons for 725.00 including rings and lightweight wrist pins.

What do you guys thing about the camshaft regrinds

I think that its too much of a B to pull the whole engine out, retune, and all the other ordeals to install the cams to be worth it...

It's VERT tight getting to the chain and tensioner on the back of the passengers side head. Find a boneyard engine for a few bills and go nuts with it.
