Any cheap S cams?

As title states, looking for a cheap set of S cams if at all possible.

I sold 2 sets a couple years ago on the cheap thinking I'd never use them so hopefully someone can return the favor. I have a spare block from my old 164S and the engine in my Milano took a crap on me, so I'm finally going to get around to using the S setup.

Thanks
Sam

I swapped them in when I skipped timing...can't feel a thing. Not worth waiting for

I made 3 significant changes to my 3L Motor:
CSC headers and 2.5" exhaust
Megasquirt FI with bigger injectors
RJ street cams
I did not remove the cylinder heads or do any other engine work. The car made 214 rear wheel HP which is equivalent to 250+ at the flywheel. I suggest that you contact RJ if you are looking for better cams.

Well, I guess I'm already one step ahead. I have some good aftermarket headers and exhaust. I'm just looking to do the swap while I have my engine apart because I have a full milano engine and full S block, but if it's not worth it on just a rebuild then I'm not going to bother. Just read mixed conclusions about being worthy or not.

Thanks graham. I stil have my full S block I figured I'd do something with but my Milano ran pretty good for the minor mods so if it's not worth it then I'll skip that.
