Got the bug BAD!

Ok i've just had the whole exhaust done on my AU1 IL6 and was so blown away by it and the dyno that i want to get the cam upgrade. My budget can only stretch to the purchase but not labour, i'm pretty confident i can do it myself, just after other peoples experiences? Are any special tools needed to dial it in etc.

grab urself a haynes or gregorys and they explain pretty well everything that will need to be done and how to make sure it is all good, if u want to dial it in proper get an adjustable gear and take it to a dyno tuners somewhere
