I was so excited couldn't wait to get a set of cams for my 3.6 but after reading about tuning difficulty over on C5 I am now having second thoughts....

This is another one of those items, many of us would love to have, but due to tuning issues and expense to buy them and have them installed, not worth the hassle in my book. Remember you need 4 cams, that adds up quickly, and if you pay for the labor, you have doubled the cost. Not like a single cam for a V8. The gains in HP does not justify the cost for me.

Labor will be free the cams and tune is what I would have to pay for. When I had my 4v mustang cams where a great mod. But that's also a V8 and was easy to tune
