Cams

I have a friend selling me his old Acura TSX cams for less then 100$. Is it even worth it to buy these and install them? I’d probably have a mechanic or shop install them because I don’t have time to do it myself and I can’t be without a car for a day with the way my work schedule has been this quarter. For 100$ are the gains plus money for labor worth it?

Don't forget you'll need a tune as well.

Some guys have had some luck with them and others not so much. I would think the gains for $100 wouldn't be too bad
