Cam install....
crank bolt
cam bolt
timing cover gasket (depending on condition)
water pump and/or gasket (depending on condition)
coolant
oil
filter
CMR tune (Johan or JerseyBoy)
timing set (depending on condition)
forged pushrods (recommended)
upgraded valve springs (recommended)
pushrods and valve springs maybe be required depending on the cam you are looking at

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure someone will chime in if I overlooked something.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Yes, I'm on the 3 year plan...so 2018 better be a hellcat Jeep.

No no no, just having a little fun with it.

Bxcharger, which cam were you thinking about getting? Some cams don't need a whole lot at all where as others require a full valvetrain at the very least.

Muffler bearings are a must.

Grab a timing chain also, for the cost cheap insurance, IMO.

It was an Arrington 586 I think, but this sounds like way more of an undertaking than I'm willing to do now as I've only had the rig for 2 weeks. Maybe summertime, was curious and curiosity almost killed the wallet .
