I haven't heard anyone on here doing it yet but I'm sure you can run them no problem... I am running 13.5:1 pistons on high test. if you go from the stock 12.9:1 to say 13.3:1 you should be safe....

if you put in a thinner gasket and degree stock cams or put a 04-07 exhaust cam in on exh side im sure you can pick up a few more hp... hard to say since i havent been inside one yet but I'm sure a good 5+ easy.... very easy

Where are the cam gears available to degree the stock cams Garth? I was under the impression you couldn't do it with stock cam gears.

no, you can, you unbolt the stock cam gears in their location and there's a slotted section you can move the bolts to.... you just have to mark the cams so you have your setting points when you install them...
