NO, NO, NO!!!


Thank God you're not a mechanic. The engine and everything are fine where they are. The cams can be swapped in a matter of 2 hours by sliding them out though the front of your head. The problem is... the stock M50 valve springs are not designed to push the higher lift (and higher revving) M3 cams.... very important to change them aswell ($19.00 each x24=$460.00 plus tax) and head removal is recommended for that (not entire engine Jon). Think about it carefully before purchasing the cams alone.

i'd like to know this as well, as it seems to be one of the better performance upgrades you can do without going broke

With a well maintain M50 motor, M3 cams and ECU should give you about +10 to 15hp gain.

that's it?? i was thinking more like 20 to 25 but i guess i'm mistaken
for that kind of money i'd say forget it and use the cash towards lighter rims etc to take a second off your quarter mile times
or get nitrous for the same money

You don't put M3 cams in your car to go drag racing. The power increase starts from the middle of the power band. In road racing, the 10 to 15hp gain will make a lot of difference when you need the power coming out of a corner. It can take a second off your lap time.
