Not going factory on my head change cause of cross thread

So ya i am getting stage 2 with stage 2 cams as well soon enough the hard part is though the install . I would Install my self with some friends but im told by the dyno shop that there has to be some cpu tunning so im saving up for the shop deal i got going soon enough ? Is that a bad idea ? Oh yeah the reason im changing is cause one spark plug hole is crossthreaded and I got it heli coiled.

very interested in hearing your results, i have thought about heads and cams but have been hesitant about install and what it does to the driveabillity and fuel economy of the car

for me the cost of parts + install need to be less than a SC that i know how to install or why would it be worth it haha

good luck! Hope everything goes smoothly for you

I have been interested in this too, I have been searching for a sound byte of what our cars sound like with cams, let us know how it all turns out

My Haynes manual says that to pull the head the engine must be out of the car! I think it can be done while still in the car but it doesn't sound easy. So probably a good idea to pay someone who knows what they are doing.

I too will be very interested in hearing how this turns out. Keep us posted.

Here's what the heads/cams sound like on a 4.0. Not too bad if you ask me.
