    So the kit with everything you need is 869 and my buddy charged me 570 to tear it down and reassemble not sure what dealer cost is but you have to tear all the way down to the heads and remove the radiator to get the cam out if you have the time it’s not hard to do it I just didn’t have the time if you got any questions you can text me 740-550-4102 even putting it in time is easy since the marks he said are already on the sprocket
