Default installing cam gears

how hard is it to install cam gears on a b-series engine? will there be much gain from it. i got a few hundred to spend, and was either thinking of cam gears or a lighter flywheel...any suggestions would help thanks!

cam gears with your mods would probably add some nice whp but a exedy 9.8 pound flywheel is a great mod that can be done for cheap around 250 or so.. its up to you but i have no regrets on my flywheel

you have your block decked and your head milled and no camgears?defenetely get cam gears and get them tunned...with your mods; more important than the flywheel.

No need to remove the cams, but you will need to loosen the timing belt. Also keep in mind that you'll need dyno tuning to see any gains from adjustable cam sprockets - they aren't just a "bolt-on" part.
