Default how long would this take on average???

aight guys, the dyno tune and cam swap has been post poned a couple more weeks because they were swamped. the only thing theyre gonna do is check ptv clearance so we can have a cam ground, cam install, and rpmII install. thats why ive not installed the rpmII yet because its just a waste of time if they just have to jerk it again anyways. my question is....for all the mechanics out there. how long on average would it take to install a cam/intake and do a dyno tune with custom chip? i have a paint appointment in about 1 1/2 months so by the time they actually get my car in ill have around a month before paint time. should they be able to pull this off? thanks all!!!

i dont see any reason they shouldnt have your car done in a month... I dont really know anything about tuning and dyno, but it shouldnt take that long to put a cam in and do an intake swap

yeah... my mechanic is pretty quick, but I know some places take forever... why dont you do some of the stuff yourself and save alot of money and time?

well, i did alot of it but i dont hae the equipment to do a cam swap. i would do the intake but i know theyll just have to remove it to check the ptv clearance anyways so.., but i did do my fluidyne rad, lakewood shocks struts, subframes, d/s loop, 70mm tb, cai, but im gonna let them install my adjustable fpr because its simple and theyll have to set it when they dynotune it.

2 days drinking a 6 pack, max, thats working slow. As for checking PTV clearance, I hope they are not just going to go off max valve lift, if so thats totally wrong and its a crapshoot. Max valve lift has nothing to do with PTV clearance. It's overlap, as the intake valve is at max lift the piston is already traveling down the bore drawing the intake charge. Ask them what thier method fro checking this clearance is and if they tell you max valve lift, take your **** and run fast http://sbftech.com/index.php/topic,57.0.html
