I could have sworn that there was an installation article in one of the Mustang mags within the past year or so... couldn't find it when doing a brief search of my back issues' covers.

Heh, short first post... [8D]

Congrats! May all your future posts be as helpful, young Jedi!

my cams just came in the mail today the instructions are insane....unless your a mechanic or really good with cars there is no way u can do this...if anyone wants to read these instructions i will send them to you....i would rather have a professional do this rather then me and my friends
I'd like to see them, just out of curiosity. [email protected]

I think music knows the real challenge isn't the cams... I didn't do the install because of my new valve springs and retainers... that is the real challenge... when you say 3 valves per cylinder... and 24 valves total... your talking about a lot of work and a PITA.... The cams are the easy part as musiccity will tell you but the springs and retainers = death if you aren't a mastertech... even then it's still annoying i'm sure...
