I paid a visit to the C-F-M store to pick up my order :) i bough the 65mm throttle body and the stage II Comp Cams, ill have the seal replaced when i install my new camshafts :)

So Jelly, wish I had much bigger cams, not that it would make that much more power though. The cams aren't hard at all to install, what takes the most time is measuring all the bucket clearances . Definitely wait to fix the seal when you put the cams in. Also are you sure it's the intake cam seal? Could be the valve cover leaking onto the alternator too?
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
