Uhh if your talkign about your camshaft, wouldn't it be hella cheaper to just throw a 3.0 or 4.0 in there? Installation would be a lot, chip should be 300/400 dollars i think,a nd cam would be like 200 i hope at most..

I would just save your money. the 20-30hp max you might get from cam/chip would be better off invested in your engine swap.
Figure out the cost of an engine swap.. the double it and it might be close to the actual cost.
