the cheapest way is to buy a used cam. you can easily find one (depending on the specs of the cam) for under $250.

you would also want to change out the valve springs and the pushrods at minimum.

as far as installing them, there's an excellent write up on ls1howto.com, if you are mechanically inclined. if you pay a shop, expect to pay a lot (probably around $1,000 i would guess).

I have been quoted 700$ at one shop and 1800$ at another, just for labor!! So its not cheap, but they sound damn good.

Do you have AFM or DOD or whatever it's called? If so, you'll probably have to pull the heads to change the lifters too.
