Carpenters Head and Cam #'s

Over at psycobike forums a guy got the head and cam package and with modfied STOCK exhaust not even an aftermarket,he pulled 242hp and 138tq. Sounds pretty good. Now he said he had other things done to it also but didnt say,and i hear at carpenters they usally dyno with race fuel. But i wish the guy gave his starting dyno numbers to see what he really gained.

Never mind i found the post ... If knecum said it makes that hp with bobs head and cam package that is what it makes ....Knecum knows what he is doing ..I like the part where he did this with stock but modded exhaust .. Can't wait to see what it does with the sidewinder pipe ..

Like what?? He seemed to say it like the head and cams were the big things,and a few other lil things. Maybe i took it wrong.Have to call bob at carpenters and see what he really got done and how much it would cost.

Steve is a racer, so of course he can't share all of his secrets....but he can build you a hell of a motor.

And the bike is not Steve's, it belongs to a customer. I will be interested to see how it runs at Bonneville. Imagine the hp with a sidewinder....

Steve is not just a builder. He is one of the top builders in the country, imo. Many, many record-setting motors under his belt. Carpenter did the cnc ported head, and supplied the cams...but Steve builds the motors.

"Imagine the hp with a sidewinder...."

The bike in question currently has a modified stock exhaust....so of course anything is probably better than that. The sidewinders have shorter primary tubes, compared to street exhausts, for more top-end power.

That is also why they are well-suited to big motors, imo...
