Default Franks Racing Sidewinder CAM PREPPED AND READY

So everyone im prepping right now to install my Franks Racing Inc - Sidewinder Cam in my 5.7L 2006 Charger R/T.

I chose the cam for a few reasons.

1. ability to use stock heads (i dont have the cash to get aftermarket ones yet)
2. Slight adjustment with the Diablo Predator and its good to drive
3. good for daily driver car
4. Unbeatable price - got the cam, head bolts (need to be replaced since they stretch) and pushrods for a low cost of 375 shipped to my door
5. reported gain of near 40 rwhp from just the cam

So i have all the stuff for the install with the exception of the Oil, filter, and coolant.

I had to purchase a pair of head gaskets and a set of (16) 6.1L Exhaust valve springs ( the reason for the exhaust used to all is they are stronger i was told) Totaled $125 shipped to my door.

So i hope to have pics of the tear down and install of the cam as well as some tips for anyone interested.

Can't wait to see how it comes together Tony. I'm considering a new cam when the warranty expires.

I'm at about 19.5k miles, and the car was bought 6.15.2007, but I'm still going ahead with my heads/cam project
