    Honestly, there is not a lot you can do to a Genesis that will offer huge gains.

    Maybe a ride plate or a pump wedge. Is it carbed or fuel injected.

    My only experience was with a 2000(I think) Genesis; It had an extended pump and 6 vein stator. Did they all come like that?

    Those heads are for non-injected motors. The fuel injected cylinder heads have two holes, one in the centre for the injector, and another at an angle for the spark plug.

    That said, increasing compression may be one of the few ways of increasing performance on a Fitch engine. Compression can be changed by a machine shop working with your current heads, but they need to know what they are doing.

    I have not used a Jetworks valve, but they only affect bottom end launch, by stopping the flow of cooling water at idle, so the waterbox doesn't get loaded up with water, that then has to be expelled when you wind up the engine.

    However, without water flow, the exhaust system will not be fully cooled at low RPM, so you need to either not idle for long periods, or plan for the high temperatures, and change the rubber parts to high temp materials.

    I'm not saying that it can't be done, but modding a injected engine is going to be expensive.

    What kind of speeds are you getting now?

    What type of gains are you looking for?
