while the rocker covers are off on my car for the gaskets to be changed how much more work is there in fitting 3.0L cams? and is there anything else that needs to be done to car after fitting them

I beleive its just the exhaust cam that you need. If its just the rocker gaskets off (not HG) then its a lot more work. Worth it tho.

might leave them as they are then. having the rocker gaskets, plugs and leads done soon so hopefully it might improve performance a bit with the plugs no longer sitting in an oil well.

Its the inlets that you change to G cams, just have to remove the belt and inlet timing gears.

Change all 4 nothing to lose if you have the covers off anyway.

Make sure you have the locking kit and while your at it, do the belt and tensioners. Once the tensioner has been disturbed, change it. It WILL fail, so if you are considering changing the Cams I repeat CHANGE the tensioners and belt

You'll get up to 15bhp increase in power changing the cams too, which is nice. :Cool2:
