    This is where I bought mine at, everything was perfect and the guy is real easy to work with. Check out his store, he has the same kit your looking at for $590.00 free shipping.

    One recommendation I would make is the trunion upgrade for the rocker arms, they are known for spilling needle bearings down into the motor on a high revving cammed motor.

    To answer your question, that is about what the kit goes for everywhere. I installed all my stuff, so I didn't have to worry about the labor. Plus you will have the cost of new head gaskets, bolts and so on. $150+.

    it's a post asking if the price is fair, I could have added a few words in there to be more specific. My apologies.

    thanks triplxl!

    No worries, I can see how it looks like spam.

    I'm juggling the idea of a blower since I might have a lead on one. But I worry about the reliability. All I want is probably about 50 more hp, do you think that is achievable with cam, intake, exhaust, and a good tune?

    My gearing is perfect right now with the 3.73's and 33"s, 1900RPM at 70mph. Would be ideal if I just had a few more ponies at the RPM range

    Just with a really solid cam, and the supporting mods you listed should be well over 50hp. Granted its going to cost you about $2000+ to have all that done.

    Well I have the intake and exhaust already. Will the link you posted be the cam that would fit my 5.3? I might be able to save some cash with a friend helping me install, would you advise on 6.0 cylinder heads to increase flow? Seeing some reasonably priced ones on ebay.

    Also, would I be able to drive it down to a shop to get it tuned after install or would it be safer to tow?
