Are any of these parts specific to the reground cams from javad?
I'm still having a tough time swallowing $950 for the same power/reliability as $2k options.
If Sean gets those cam measurements, will it make it any easier to compare javad's product to the pricier stuff, be they catcams, scott j's program, or direct with Crane?
Either way, I'm hip to everything else you've researched... Maybe one more year before funding that 529 plan...

Ok guys, got the price on the valve stem seals. There
$.75 each so 32 are $24.00 minus the 10% is $21.00.
Again this is like a smorg..pick & choose what you
want to make YOU'R car what YOU want it too be.
All these are great prices. I worked with Javad on a
GB of Rs2 caliper bracket..which I posted on
here..$165 shipped from $225 not shipped. So Javads a
very fair guy.
So again...looking to do this after the Holidays...so
listers have a chance to mull it over.
& Dave..I KNOW..THIS IS SWEEEEET ;->
Ok guys. After talking to a few of you I have some
more parts prices & options.
Titanium Retainers- $385 minus 10% is $346
ARP Head Studs- $326 minus 10% $293
HG kit- for 3.6 $200, & $200 for 4.2 minus 10%
OE guides- $3 each minus 10% is $86
Lifters- the V8 lifters are lightweight from the
factory, $15 each. Minus 10% $432
& everything is 10% off. But I'm sure I can get a
little better price from Javad.
Now listers don't have to get crazy..you guys can get
anything off the list..it's just not for everything &
still get the same prices.
& to recap the other stuff....
Cam grinds are $950
Over sized Intake Valves are $440 minus the 10% is
HD Valve Springs are $325 minus the 10% is $290.
I'm waiting on the cost for the valve seals..but I
could get them from the dealer ifr Javad don't have
any. & I get a GREAT price at my local dealer ;-) But
the cost for everything is...drum roll please.......
....Allmost $3G. But as I said...
...you can get whatever on the list & still retain the
AGAIN....you can get whatever on the list..the prices
aren't if you get everything.
Cam grinds will still be $950, Titanium retainers are
still $346..ect..mix & match what you want.
I'll be doing the cam grinds, HD valve springs,
oversized Intake valves, lifters, ARP head studs, HG
These are all great prices.
& NO Metal HG'ets yet Sean.
