Yea, I could branch off of what I bought and note the options available. As for that specific mod, this motor is an S52 and if you were to buy them for an M52 it would be hard to gauge the cost. It all depends on who you would buy the cams from, unless you're buying them new. At that point you might as well have bought the Schrick or similar performance cams. I paid $350 for the cams and trays ( the motor was missing them).

As for port mods, I'm assuming you're talking about the head. I'm sure some people would port and polish the head to get the most out of their cam upgrade. I'm not going to be turboing or doing some crazy N/A application, so it's not really worth my time.
