Ok i have been tinking about getting a camshaft for some time maybe this year for christmas. But i have some questins that are holding me back. I plan to have it get installed but if it sounds easy enough i might do it myself but where exactly is the camshaft located in the engine? and if i have it installed will it be costly with a lot of labor? and lastly what exactly do you have to do to install it? need help please before i order the part. thanks

Read this. Should give you a pretty good idea:

http://74.57.209.83:9000/caminstall.htm

It starts off, "Welcome to one of the biggest nightmares you're going to get yourself involved in."

Not saying you can't do it, but it was more than I wanted to get involved in, and I've been a back yard mechanic for almost 15 years. If you pay someone, they'll want $600-$800 just for the labor.

Good luck, Even. If you can, take some pictures of each step.

A cam install is not a simple task. Unless you are used to, and comfortable with major engine repairs, I'd recommend paying a professional who knows what they are doing. jmho.

I second the Intense hint.

I'm not real familiar with the Series I motors, but am I correct in reading that you are running a 2.5" pulley with nothing more than mufflers and an intake? If I tried that on my 98, the blast radius would be pretty large.!! Is there that much of a difference in the SCs on the 95 motor?

Yes, the M62 blower needs to spin faster to make the same level of boost. 2.85" is stock SC pulley diameter.
