    NA Cam Performance Increases - For SHO Engine?

    What kind of performance/RPM gains would there be by running the NA cams, in a SHO engine with cam gears, springs & retainers?

    I know some people are getting away with running R2/R3 regrinds with only a reflash, but unless I could definitely get a (c) program done to my existing reflash, idk if the regrinds would be for me (vacuum/idle/starting) - on a "rec" ski.

    I am trying to pick up another 2-300 rpm's (especially for the heat next spring), without going any bigger than my ET18 wheel & am wondering if the NA cams might be the ticket? I would also like the avoid the expense or necessity for buckets if possible, which is another reason I am only thinking about running the "NA's".

    My prop is already pitched perfectly & really don't wanna touch it. And I may pick up a L13 cone, which will initially cost some RPM's & I can't go any larger than my current 87 nozzle.

    Probably the best advice yet. I am already running the R&D gears. The ski runs like a raped ape & is scary quick, just getting greedy and trying to squeeze out every last rpm. I need to just appreciate how well it's running & enjoy it - for once in my life

    Lets just say with these boosted motors most of the gain is going to be in the timing.Whats the mph looking like anyway

    According to my insurance carrier "75", but it might be just a couple of digits higher..
