Carpenters head and cams or 2011 zx10r?

Ok you techy guru's out there here's a question for you.. lets put those skills to work..I have an 08 zx10r.. I'm looking to gain another 20hp without spraying her. Carpenter racing offers a head and cam package that claims to give you and additional 18-24hp.. If I go with that set up from where my bike is now, ill be putting out about 180-187hp. The purpose of this is to get that same number the BMW S1000rr is getting. Or I can wait until feb and get the 2011 zx10r black of course and put an akro slip on, pwr cmndr and filter and be at the same number. I love my 08 it handles great at the track but I also do the mile 1/2 race and my only lost has been to the beamer.. And the rider was 100lbs heavier than me!!!! let me know what you guys think..... now i have a custom hmf full system pwr cmndr 3r and race filter..

Carpenter makes good stuff but 18-24hp is optimistic.

Or you can sell your gen 3 and get a gen 1 and get the AA supercharger, then you wouldn't have to ask who has more HP....well not for at least 3 years perhaps.

I would keep the one you have now, but instead of getting the carpenters head and cam package, I would contact JNM Motorsports and talk with him. He's gonna guide you in the right direction and He KNOW what he's doing!!!!

JNM knows there shit when it comes to the 10's and they have the quickest zx10 out there, thats the route i would go if you decide to keep your 3rd gen.
