ODDYSEY,

What did you end up using for a new camshaft sprocket? New factory or aftermarket? Either way, I'm glad it's running again and you're happy with the new parts!

Post up an idle clip when you get a chance. I love the sound of the FRPP Hot Rod camshafts. I don't think hearing them will ever get old!

I just had the shop put on new OEM since it was only 1 side. If I had more time I would of gotten the set from you guys since that is where I got everything else.

I will be posting up a clip as soon as I can!

I hear ya. The OEM will work fine, especially when in a time crunch. If you ever plan to change them down the road, at least you'll know what to plan for.

Looking forward to this video!

Shane

Isn't the cam sprocket that comes in the FFRP cam drive kit pretty much OEM?
I look forward to hearing hot rods in person sometime

it'll help me make the decision as to get them or not. (though I'm sure they'll wake up my heads) and per dyno joe I shouldn't wait to long as I have brand new rollers and followers right now

Wow. Engine bay looks awesome! Very clean and tidy, especially with the painted cam covers or "valve covers".

Well done!
