I'm about ready to do the cam swap in my 2kGT and would like to get an idea of how much down time to expect (this is my daily driver). I'm debating on either doing the SHM cams w/ less than .500 lift which will only require dropping in the cams or a custom ground Comp piece (.512 I think) which will require a spring upgrade. How long does it take to swap valvesprings? If there is a significant power difference b/t the 2 cams, I'll probably just go for the .512 cam.

Any input is appreciated.

Jay,

With your car being a 2000, your current cams are .505/.530 for lift. As long as you keep lift under .550, then you're fine w/ stock springs. I've yet to see a stock spring fail w/ a .550 lift camshaft. Many people make choices for cams, such as SHM, Comp, ModMax, VT Engines, Crower, etc. All of these companies can make a camshaft choice suitable for your application.
