To YZ time or not to YZ time, that´s not the question anymore.

I am about to invest in a 450F YZ cam, yet as I am based in Brazil my dealer doesn´t have these off the shelfs and e-bay purchasing is complicated for some sellers that don´t sell abroad. Is the to be expected change similar to changing the 426 timing (the 426 had a higher compression rate also that spiced things up compared to the 450, didn´t it?)
Can any one give me the name and telephone number of an organized Yamaha dealer in the states where I can buy the cam, and what price is reasonable?
Also, besides the camshaft do I need other parts, such as shims to adjust valve clearance, or nothing else as just the timing angle changes?
Thanks for your help!

1) the part I need to exhange is the 5TA-12180-00-00 (which according to the Yamaha Part List is the EXHAUST CAM SHAFT of the YZ450F, right?
2) besides the camshaft, do I need anything else (parts?) to make the exhange from WR to YZ timing. Washers to adjust valve clearance...?
3) Where (in the ThumperTalk forums) can I find a step-by-step description how to exchange the camshaft.
