Please direct me.. 08 Performance.

What all do I really have left? My mods are in my sig. I'm looking to get more performance out of my bike, without going internal.

The only thing I can really think of is DynoJet Ign. Module, a TRE, Kawi Race Intake Cam, and thin head gasket. Is that it?

Also is there really any significant difference between Ivans TRE and Xtre's? I know the Xtre offers the gear indicator, but are the setting performance really any different? I don't really see any point in spending another hundred dollars for nothing.

2008 ZX-10R. | Full Arrow exhaust | PCV | AutoTune | BMC Race | Driven -1+2 520 conversion | Speedohealer | Spiegler braded lines | Carbone Lorraine SBK5 | Dunlop Q3 | more to come.

first thing i would do is fix the suspension, there is no point have power if you can't get it to the ground, plus good suspension will make you quicker than most power mods

If Life throws you a curve just stick out your knee and lean into it.:deathmeta

The thing of it is I don't do many track days... I live in the SE TN area. Deals Gap, the Skyway, and the Ocoee area is in my backyard so my suspension is suited enough for me (being 5'10, 175lbs) I can hold my own going through the twisties, but looking for more straight line power.

You should proceed as you stated, thin head gasket + race intake/06 exhaust cams + ignition module + secondaries removed + new map.

Then there is the next level which costs $$$. Overbore it and the smile will never get off your face!!!

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

KHI gives it as the race exhaust cam for the 08.
So save your money and buy a cheap used 06 one.

shit just being a good rider will do that! I have ran sessions with guys on fully built bikes vs my basically stock 071krr and there isnt a difference barely!

I vote, rip her apart and do a rebuild+head work! should be solid after that
