emission valves removed, head plated
inlet cam change
adjustable cam sprokets
new cam chain
manual cam chain adjuster
thin head gasket (high comp)
head cleaned up (high port and polis)
k&n airfilter

I wanted to go 1441 on my gen one but iam very happy with my 1397 motor. Money plays a big factor to motor builds. Head porting and cams play a big roll in na motors. I have a 1397 and it's 13 to 1 compresson with baby cams and ported head. Makes 200 whp on 110 octane. Bike can make more on different fuel and bigger cams. You need to decide on what you really want to do with the bike. Then build a motor to that. That will help you decide what cams, cam timing, compression, stroker crank, bore size.

busakiller is 1000 percent correct.. this stuff gets expensive FAST.... and the head and cams CANNOT be skipped if u want to make more power and torque.... so to the OP..... if you tell the experts here how much money you are willing to spend, they can point you in the right direction, and even the best place to get parts and ADVICE.... advice is a big variable that most uninitiated underestimate... and you are at the greatest place on the net for advice and help.... GREAT group of guys and gals here.

Sounds like you have been involved in a few builds ali , what sort of bikes have you hotted up in your history of bikes ? I'm sure there are others interested to know bro . I realize you only recently bought your way into turbo ownership , with your purchase from GNBRETT , obviously this was a great way to enter , but you tend to miss out on the dedication to get things done right , as you do of your own build project . :thumbsup:

if I made 200K a year.... no doubt I would do it.... send a bike to frank and have a full build done.... keep in mind.... I come from nothing.... this is my first REAL hot rod..... my mother lives 300 miles away from me.... I don't live with my folks.... haven't since I was 16..... I work ALOT to be able to do the little things I do enjoy..... I just recently bought a little condo... that I bought on a SHORT sale.... for 60K.... in NY... again.... lots and lots of shopping around..... I have lived 16 different places in my life and it just FEELS sooooooooo good to NEVER have to move again.... but to tell the truth im a CAR guy at heart.... but the hot rod car I would wanna build would be 300K.... soooo thats out.... im enjoying tinkering with the turbo bike though... I have my sights set on a new hellcat redeye... but again... I have to make this financially do-able..... my WHOLE LIFE has been a struggle.

Built my camaro as much as I could... 4.56 gears/cam. street slicks.... I worked at a gas station/ auto shop for the first 20 years of my life... so yeah.... I know a little.... THEN I worked as service manager at Walts Bros auto repair in west spfld MASS... they work on Saab/Volvo/Audi... some BMW stuff..... been around cars all my life..... and started riding when I was 16... I could ride a motorcycle before I could drive a car... first bike was an 82 Kawasaki 440ltd.... but bear in mind... I always lived in apartments.... no house/garage....
