they look lie they are press on to me, which means you can't just use the cam tool, you'll have to take off the PS pump, front cover, etc.

I have no issue re-selling them back on the bay. Should I then go for the bolted sprockets instead?

I would, unless your in a hurry to get them. With bolted cams, you'll need to buy new bolts, but then you either use the tool, or if you see something wrong, you can still open it up. Bolted sprockets just give you the option.

well see that's the thing. Is it really that bad? I mean I just need a little more patience ad need to remove a few more things right? I might just end up keeping them. :confused:

Its not really that bad installing them. It just take a lot more time. Me and a friend did the whole job in three days working only after school, in the meantime we installed the pi intake, accufab 75mm throttle body and plenum. Good learning experience too. Just make sure you read up on it, especially the timing.
