Hey guys I live in Perth and called BPT Motorsport and they gave me a quote for stage 2 cams for about 3 grand. I already had a custom tune from them so just a dyno its 120 per hour which im ok with. But they were saying that stage 2 Crow Cams will cost between $1400-$1800 by themselves and labour would cost around $800-$900. Does this sound correct? Bear in mind iv'e already paid for a custom tune so they weren't going to charge me for all the extras just the dyno time which for 1-3 hours would be $120-$360.

-Crow cams really that expensive?
-Labour that expensive as well? they charge around $190 an hour.

ring CMS (ceasent motorsport) they will give you a price but yes around 3000 for 2 billet cams(brand new) 190 an hour is bloody steep id be shopping around and try wade,JMM,camtech, etc...

never stick to one place always shop around even if you gotta buy parts from other places

Sound VERY expensive for what you get.

But then again, your in WA, just blame the mining.

I go there 2-3 times a year and you can't even get a single bed with a room no larger for less than $180 a night. in Vic you get a 2 bedroom with esuite and breakfast included!
