    45cc chamber will give u 145-150lbs comp but i beleive they also change the squish to get a better burn, hopefully one of the pro's chime in to confirm that before u have it cut

    Okay............ So the work is done. Ill be picking it up tomorrow am. The bad thing is I have to wait till thursday for the head gasket. Yes this is a stock 60T head.

    He got the CC down to 45 on all 3 domes. Its not that big of a deal the guy had it done in a few hours. Cheap price too!! After I test the ski on Friday with the head work Ill be able to let everyone know if its a good deal and worth dealing with him.

    If it works out this is going to be a big plus for all us 2 stroke riders in the Treasure Coast. 1 day of down time is soooooo much better then the 7 to 10 everyone else told me. Also for under 100.00 this is going to be a good bang for the buck.

    I was told you should leave a hair of the lip left. Almost nothing 2 - 3 thous. If you didnt it would "trap" fuel. IDK, I guess well just have to see.
