my 1363 is probably going back together tomorrow night . new copper .005 base gasket and spring steel head gasket . very minor compression bump and some different cam numbers this time . id love to get it to 203-205 hp just by tuning . still deciding what pipe to hang from it too....wether to leave the arm stocl or go +2,dyno on spray or off.....nice thing about winter..plenty of time to save money and make decisions . and ive got plenty of both to do ! anyone else feel as far behind as i do ?

There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.

I like this new area, I hope I can get enough time and cash to frequent the strip in the near future. Next year at Gateway Mad Mike! I promise not to miss you this time.:P

Feel the same way. Have snow flakes coming down right now.
As for my 1361, I pulled her a part last month and sent the head out to do some hogging. Also put knife rods in.
Worryed about the longevity of the N20.

Oh yeah....

HEY MOTORHEAD! Glad to see ya here!

FYI, your filters are still holding up after 27,000 miles. I did have to reglue the edges the last time I cleaned them. The airbox has always been clean enough to eat out of. They still, and always have done a good job of filtering out any possible debris. Thanks!
