I have a stock motor currently running with an HMF Comp Series Exhaust. Thinking about cams will stage 2 make a difference? is that ok to put on a stock motor?
What all has to be done to the motor to go to a higher compression piston? aka can I just drop in say an 11:1 wiseco piston and do the stage 2 or will i need to do additional mods to be able to put the piston in.It will make a difference, but it works a lot better when paired with a higher compression piston.
I disagree, bigger is not always better and I don't like the curve of the stage 3 for a stock head, carbs and small bore/stock stroke.if you do a bore on it too, might as well go for the stage 3
You just as well wait on the stage 2 cam shaft. You have to pull the head off to have the valve springs installed. It is another 6 bolts and the cylinder comes right off.It is an 03 raptor. I honestly dont know how many hours are on it total though I think it has quite a few so getting a bore is probably not a bad idea. That will have to wait until after the first dune trip of the year in 3 weeks.
Regardless I think 11:1 is the most I want to go right now anyway.
