PRICE BREAK DOWN:
Stage 1X Cam $300
Comp Cams 105 Springs $135
Manley Retainers $30
Cam install kit ~$100
JP Performance chain $80
Rocker arm bolts $20
INTENSE PCM $100

Half Price install $300 ($600 normal I think) Since you are in the Armed Forces
Approximate subtotal: $1165
Leaving you $2835 left in your budget. I would also recommend headers which run $700-750 + $150 install ($300 normal price)
Leaving about $2’000 left for the transmission.
GOD bless you guys over there!
I actualy think I may stick with something like the above plan. tweek it a little to fit my Ideas, but it does sound like a good solid start of a plan. From looking around on the web, it looks like putting $2K in to the transaxel should be enough for what I plan to do and still leave me 2-3k to play with.
Feel free to give me ideas on if this sounds just about right or if I should trade one part for another...but I am thinking the above sounds like a realistic base. Thank you very much McGrath, looks like you put a little thought into it.
