    for curiosity's sake... will these work as a direct "bolt-on"? on a redline? if so, how much of a difference would they make?
    i'm just thinking that might put a good edge on some of the competition at a bit of a cost)

      Exactly.

      You're going to want to tune for a new set of cams.

      I know HP Tuners has their stuff out. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Without a doubt.

        I would think you would be able to tune for the cams now. Like Vin said HP Tuners has their new tuning system out and all of the people that have used it so far have loved it.

            a new set of cams with tuning would really make this engine come alive.
