OoOops i ment do i need any other supporting engin work if i do a cam ? iam trying to do things one step at a time
I dont know whats available for the XX but there were 3 hot cam stages available when I had my 400ex. Stage 3 required heavier springs, I'm more than sure there is a cam out there that you can use without other mods. Like we said before Fastech and Velociraptor can help you out. Fastech (matt) worked for alba previously so I'm sure he has a lot of input and options for you.:D

easy read

*The kits utilize three different custom grind cams developed through rigorous and intensive testing. Our main concerns were power, torque, and reliability. The Stage 2 cam is a pure "drop-in" cam which will work fine with your stock valve springs! The Stage 3 "Desert & Endurance" kit uses a more aggressive cam than the Stage 2, although it requires an aftermarket valve spring kit (included in the kit!). The Stage 3 "Aggressive" kit uses a cam that requires hardened rocker arms and a valve spring kit custom made (specifically for this cam) for us by Kibblewhite. The cams cost $209.00, the rocker arms cost $65.00 each (3 required), and the valve spring kits cost $165.00/$183.00.

The pistons, made custom for us by CP piston, are forged with an 11:1 compression ratio. We trust CP with supplying pistons for all of our engine kits, and they truly are the best! A point which is well proven once you have the opportunity to examine these pistons. These pistons have been custom tailored to provide both excellent power and longer life. Certain critical areas of the pistons have been made "extra-strong" to provide exceptional durability. We have had a few failures with the stock Honda pistons which have been attributed to their thin skirts. The improved skirt design provided by CP in combination with the re-enforced crown and bridge are just a few reasons why this piston truly is the best available! The pistons cost $229.99.

The two "Stage 3" kits offer the option of porting. We have spent what seems like countless hours on the flow bench to develop the best port configuration. The porting includes larger intake valves (+1mm) as well as a 5-angle valve job on all four valves. We have increased the flow characteristics dramatically over stock to provide increased power across the entire power band! The porting costs $525.00 plus the price of the valves ($77.18) and valve stem seals ($51.16).

We are also offering to bore your throttle body. After experimenting with several different venturi sizes we have concluded that 46mm gave us the best of both top and bottom end performance.

With three different levels of performance, we have a kit to accommodate anybody from the weekend warrior to the professional racer. All three kits have been tested and proven by Championship pro racer Wayne Matlock. With sweeping wins in last year's SCORE racing series (host to the infamous Baja 250, 500 & 1000!), Wayne has the expertise and ability to provide us with the abuse and feedback we need to build a solid and reliable kit. Basically, Wayne represents the absolute maximum amount of abuse that a person can provide to a quad, which makes him an excellent test rider. Also, his countless hours of seat time allow him to give us the specific and in-depth feedback which we need to thoroughly develop these kits. All three kits provide excellent bottom, mid, and top end power.

To start, we have our Stage 2 engine kit. This kit costs $475.00 and will provide an excellent blend of power and reliability. It comes with the 11:1 CP piston, camshaft, and gasket kit.

The Stage 3 "Desert & Endurance" is the perfect kit for someone wanting more but still wants to keep the reliability for those long and "far from home" rides. This kit is offered with and without porting. The price is $649.00 without, and $1,299.00 with porting. The kit includes the piston, camshaft, valve spring kit, and a gasket kit. When purchased with porting, we also include the larger intake valves and valve stem seals. Note the camshaft in this kit is more aggressive than that of the Stage 2.

The Stage 3 "Aggressive" kit is the pinnacle of performance while still maintaining good reliability. Any component whose design limit may have been exceeded resulting from the kit is replaced with those that have been modified and upgraded. Basically, we filtered out all the weak links of the engine. In the words of Wayne Matlock "This is the fastest quad I have ever ridden!!!"

All three kits are comprehensive and come with everything a person needs to install them (with the exception of a service manual). The kits are available and ready for purchase. Please contact Alba @ 1-800-487-3236 to order the kits. If you have technical questions or need assistance then ask to speak with the Performance Dept. and we will gladly assist in any way we can.

The biggest improvement you could make is by getting a decent full exhaust. This have been proven here before.
Exactly. if you plan on doing engine mods at some point you have to have full exhaust. no engine mods slip-on is fine.

I'm trying to get my old job back at ams(just part time), I was a welder and fabricator there for turbo cars. If I get the job I'll build your header but I haven't heard anything yet. I'll keep you updated!

that would absolutly rock....... would i need to send you my motoworks exhaust ?
Yes you would have to send me your exhaust but we have to see if I can get that part time gig first. He just fired 3 guys so its going to be hard. I'm trying to convince him a part time guy is what he needs.
