I was thinking of getting an 08 Bengal because I could get a good deal on it,
But I like the cam and wheel on 2010. Could I purchase the cloaked kit for the
2010 and upgrade it?

I believe you also need to upgrade your limbs to the new 2010 limbs and new rotocups.

You can put a set of NOS cams on a bengal.

you'll need a new riser, new limbs, new limb pockets and a differant length string.

would not be cost effective.........

you dont need all that for a set of NOS cams. I have done it to a 09 Bengal.

This is true, but do you know where a man could get a pair of the correct size nitrous cams? They're like gold to people that have them.

Answering the OP's original question, if you buy all the components new the conversion would cost about $600. The only thing that will be useable are the e-clips that hold the axles in place. Oh, and the draw length module.

Sorry Mike. I was not asking where I could get nitrous cams. I have a bow with B cams on it. I'm OK. I was just intimating that to convert a Bengal to Nitrous cams first entails finding a set of Nitrous cams in the first place--not an easy task since Marrtin quit making or stocking them a couple years ago. Shame of it is the Nitrous X was one of the best cam systems ever devised.

FYI, my Nitrous X cams are on a custom built 2005 ShadowCat with SE limb pockets. The a2A is a whopping 32" or so and the brace height measures 9 3/8". Home made STS mounted where the cable rod would be and Winner's Choice rigging. I don't think I've shot the bow for a couple years now.
