she's in the shop

took the 10 in today for a few upgrades....racing intake cam, head gasket, muzzy's dry nitrous, full evo 2, power commander, and tre, custom map, and shims for the clutch...my tuner currently has 2 other 10r's at his shop, he recommended degreeing my cams to 105/105. however....most people on this site run 107/104....he told me i will have lots of power all around...without sacrificing top-end. i only plan on using the nitrous at the drag strip....but i dont want to lower it permanently...so maybe a strap and adjustable dog bones are in my future too. its gonna come out of that shop a friggin' Monster!!!! cant wait to get it back .

Of course you need 2 maps when running nitrous. I degreed my stock cams at 105/102 with muzzy thin head gasket. You might want to degree the race intake cam at 108/102 as per the race kit manual.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

but wouldnt the 108/102 be for a full on race bike w/ the piston kit, harness, ect. or is that what kawi recommends no matter what other mods you have?

I talked to WSTAAB and he suggested that you degree the cams as the cam was intended to be used for track purposes. I was going to do the head work that the race manual recommends with the intake cam and decided against it for ridability issues. WSTAAB says the factory cams are big enough for street/strip use. He also said that I would want to look into the race ECU if I did the race cam and head work. I trusted what he said. We went over this already.
