PI questions

Before anyone gets the notion to tell me to use a search, I'll just say I don't feel like doing it, I'm lazy. I have a few questions.

Is 185.00 for a new PI intake with aluminum crossover a good price?

What kind of PI cams and heads do I need to do the swap on my 4.6L 96 LX? If there is different cams and heads available.

And lastly, for someone, a newbie if you will, with all the of the tools to do the job. How many hours does this generally take?

96' 4.6l LX Sport - Modding put on hold for awhile
91' Chevy 1500 - Can't wait for the 383 Stroker

I paid 149 bucks for the FRPP PI intake from Dan (or Jason, I don't remember the timing of it) from this site in the forum in the Marketplace.

As far as cams, it doesn't really matter depending on how you are going to do it. I want to do mine without removing the front cover (shush everyone, it is my fantasy) so I wanted and got ones with bolt on cam gears (I have the Ford timing chain wedge tool). Heads the same, any PI head except a V10 and 3 valver.

I haven't done the cams yet, never thought or looked into doing the heads, and the intake alone took around 3 to 4 hours (I don't get paid by the hour so I take lots of breaks).
