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

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...

you called the right place :thumbsup: 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. :thumbsup:

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

Wo reading I'm sure this has been said; spray is only a temp thing which you need to prep your bike for too, that's why I decided to go turbo cuz its alwys there. Go w the motor mods, you'll always have that power on tap rather push a button just to find out you have no juice left.

I did the thin head gasket, degreed the stock cams and put a 50 shot of n2o to it and it runs fine. The n2o is good for the track, but you won't see any power with it on the street unless you run it all the time. A good start is to do the thin head gasket and degree the cams. Then you can add the n2o to it later.

Should be no problem IF the work is done with quality.
