    It’ll run but likely stall. Afr’s will be way out so don’t put too much load on it. Best waiting till you can afford to tune

    Wait untill you can afford the tune then do it.

    It'll run but it won't be happy. Will probably over fuel something chronic around idle and wouldn't be surprised if it stalls. I wouldn't recommend driving it.

    What they all said
    Waiting won't kill you, fit the cam when you can afford to get it tuned
