Re: Replacing camshaft...
$1200 is a very decent price indeed with labour inclusive. It would be a good 6 hour job atleast considering you gotta drain engine and coolant, recover gas in A/C system, remove front bar, radiator, A/C condenser, timing cover, then the cam. Then fitting you've gotta put the new cam in, set it up right with the adjustable timing gear, refit and seal timing cover, refit radiator, A/C condenser, put new oil and coolant, then evacuate and charge A/C system up again. All that takes time, and the components and gaskets and sealant like SVO said all cost money too. I think $1200 supplied and fitted is great value!
