What, I'm being outdone by another 96-99 Bonneville. Good luck with the install, it'* a lot of fun tearing the motor apart. If you don't have them already, get replacement harmonic balancer and camshaft bolts (these set my project back a week). They're torque to yield bolts and shouldn't be re-used, but they don't come with the S1X cam package.
