Would I benefit purchasing a set of 04 L cams instead of running the stock N/A cams I have when I complete the swap?

L and N/A have the same identical cams and heads so you would only gain more threads on the plug holes nothing else.

Yes it's not cheap, but considering it has the ability to pull timing out if individual cylinders if it senses knock this 650ish could save you 4-20K by saving your motor from blowing.

It actually pretty simple to install, took me 3 days after work to install it due to the old instructions I had and a miscommunication between me and the manufacture. I could do the install now in 2hrs!

BTW the L/HDs have knock sensors installed. There just turned off, this kit uses the factory knock sensors even on the L/HDs.

If anyone is going the performance route, this is a good guy. Bought my transmission off him and he drove to charleston WV to meet me for drop off.

Same 38CC heads I am running. Port job and heads costs well over 3500 for those. Include upgraded springs, rockers, lash adjusters and cams.
