I think the v6 cams are around 300$. Then you have to buy pushrods and springs which can be $200+ easily, then a tune.. They aren't too bad if you're mechanically inclined. On the v8s they can add around 50hp. They perform best with heads, intake and exhaust.

If you want a cam solely because of how it sounds, you're doing it wrong.

a V6 CAN'T sound like a V8... EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you will always be able to tell. a cam swap can cost 500-100+ depending on how big the cam, if you buy all new valve train parts, and if you do the work yourself...

That's not going to happen. It will sound good, but if you're expecting a V8 sound you can only get that from a V8.

your correct it's the higher RPM's that give it away usually.

at idle, i CAN sound like an 8 depending on what exhaust

This thread is just going to keep getting uglier and uglier If you want a cam, just do it. If you want more power and a better sound, trade your car and take a bank loan for a V8.
