looking for extra power

I run an 05 set up for 1/8th mile. best pass so far is a 6.11 118mph. looking for some extra power without messing with the motor or nitrous.. I have a nitrous set up but dont want to run it on the stock motor. My buddy ran his 05 for 5 years before the motor blew and i want to keep the motor stock. Bracket racing on a budget. got a brocks sidewinder and a pc3. race gas didnt do much with the race map except hurt the wallet.. 140.00 a 5 gallon here in va.
Any body know any tricks they would like to share.
thanks

brocks hurt performance on stock motors, but work very well on modded motors with some juice. For cheap performance I'd recomend replacing the stock intake cam for one out of 08+ zx10r

like thunder said unless you have a built motor that sidewinder is hurting your bike performance, good mods to do would be 08 race intake cam, deck head, thin hg... all will net you some nice gains without hurting the wallet to bad.

What kind of hp gains could you expect from a thin head gasket and race cams?

I went from running 6. teens with 16/45 to high 5.90's/6.0's by switching to 15/45. I only had a slip on, bmc filter, and a air shifter sitting at 62 in on extensions. I went a 6.11 at 59in with the same set up. Whats your 60' and weight?

I've heard not so good results using the Brock's map as well. I could be wrong but I think his maps are tuned with out a air filter
