Price differences? I'd go for the SS package if only it included the race intake cam.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

yeah cams are hard to find.... you can gain some good numbers by doing the "SS"package but best bang for the buck nitrous is a great way to go, ran nitrous on my stock motor with thin head gasket and cams for 18k miles no problems... was running anywhere between a 20-40 shot depending on the racing...

Nitrous>>> you will make more hp than an SS package and a lot cheaper. There is a whole lot more to an ss package than just thin gasket and degreeing the cams.

you called the right place I ran a 30 shot on my stock motor, I moved the intake air temp sensor so it was in the direct flow of the nitrous. bike went 8.80 at 158 shootin from second gear on. If you get a pc hub you can have it tuned for the nitrous and flip the switch to the other map.

instead of flipping the switch you can throw a throw it in the firing circuit

so when you arm the system and go full throttle it will automatically change maps

i've been wanting to do this for awhile now lol have it all drawn out
