    Unhappy Performance cams for our engine?

    So here is a question that I have been researching for the past hour. The forums, nor Google could answer my question.

    Can you swap our stock cams for performance cams? I've only read about one V6 Camaro that was camm'd. Would Camaro cams even fit our engines?

    There is hardly any info available, and all input is appreciated!

    Thanks!

    We have the same 3.6 DI engines, I believe. I didn't know there was a cam for our engines. I was talking last month with a group of Camaro enthusiasts and they never mentioned a cam for the V6.

    I'll post the link when I get home tonight. I believe the cams were from the guys at MACE.

    Here is the link to the thread discussing LLT cams in a camaro:

    http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=239911

    I briefly spoke with a MACE engineering rep, and he assured me they would most definitely fit our engines. I haven't had the time to call and get specifics such as price and availability, but hopefully I'll find the time by the end of the week.

    Is anyone else out there interested in this? Expected gains are 40 - 45hp, and I'm guessing the price will fall between $1000 - 1500.

    I know one shop was quoting $1200 for install, gaskets/fluids. Once you have CAI/iceolator/ported tb/trifecta tune, the HP starts to cost a lot more

    Installed complete is $2400. Add $700 if you want new timing chain kit installed at the same time.

    solid 30 RWHP from them, but the ported intake and heads really allow the added lift to work.

    Takes app 2-4 days to do.

    Okay, I will ask the question: How much is the whole shebang with the cam, heads and intake?
