my mechanical experience = non existent so that is a no go. plus i have heard you need expensive tools to install cams without breaking them. i think installation is something that is better left to my mechanic. i hope to gain some mechanical skills so i can work on my own car but i do not think cams are the best starting point.

My m3 cams and JC custom made chip went in this weekend... just finished about 4 hours ago. This is really no small job. I hope you got the vanos unit for it too. Also I would not recommend doing this on your own. We had no problems, but my mechanic has done this before. Took about 4 hours to do and time. I used pelicanparts.com DIY which helped out a ton!

all I have to say is this is quite a boost in power. From 3k rpms to redline seriously feels like the car running some form of boost. it's incredible. never felt something like this without having f/i. If I was to guess, I'd say at least a shot of 45+ HP in a 328 engine. good luck and congrats.

i bought them from the classified on bimmerforums.com

jrhaile how much did the software cost? where did you get it from?

does anybody know how much better the gains are with software like the eurosport tuned for m3 cams and the m50 intake manifold vs. the regular shark injector?

Hey BW, I'm confused about what car you have? M52 engine or m50? Has to be m52 since you're getting a m50 manifold right? Anyways, my chip cost me 250 custom made by the Josh at autowerks.com. He's a standup guy and asked lots of questions to get it right. Now I have no idea how these cams are going to work or what kind of SW you'll need on your car to acomodate the cams since you more then likely, to my knowledge, have a m52 engine setup with obd2. If you were to do a full obd conversion, I could tell you anything you wanted to know and what to get.
