    Post Complete DIY Vortec heads/cam upgrade Budget & Parts List

    Throughout my D.I.Y. Vortec head and cam photo install thread I promised a complete budget and parts list. Check this out!

    Basically $1,504.53 for all the necessary parts/gaskets shipped, including the cam and valvetrain. I also ended up buying over $600 of tools to do the job 100% D.I.Y. (except the machine work obviously.)

    This budget IMO, is the cheapest possible amount you could spend to do a complete Vortec heads/cam upgrade with quality parts, start to finish!

    Updated 11/16 to fix a part number typo on the stock replacement roller lifters. If there are any further corrections, I'll continue updating the original files linked in the first post.
