iceman320 ok thanks maybe i will start with the programmer and a different muffler and see how I like it first before I go inside the engine? cause I might decide to just go with the stage 2 hotcam.

700xxchris to get everything out of hc3 u need a full exhaust and youll nee a programmer to run the hc3 correctly

iceman320 ok thanks I will look at the hotcams then and then look at a programer and a slip on muffler to go along with it all. thanks.

700xxchris yes it will work with a stock motor im fixing to put one in myself

iceman320 was talking to my uncle about doing a high compression piston on my 700 and he told me to wait to do it until i have to bore the cylinder and then do the hc piston so will the stage 3 hot cams work with the stock engine and then i could do the big three along with them?

jfdanie2 If you are going the hot cam route then go stage three. It's completely drop in. The web 290 is even better but you need heavier springs and hardened rockers

iceman320 thanks guys. I have now also been thinking about doing new cams along with the new piston while i have the engine apart would the hot cams stage 2 cams work good with the higher compression piston? and what else will I need to get if i do get the new cams?

jfdanie2 If you do not have any scratches or gouges in the cylinder then you may not have to have it honed. If you can still see the cross hatches in the cylinder and can take your thumbnail and it not catch on any gouges on the cylinder wall then you should be good. Just slap the new piston in and break it in.

Honing it with a strong cross-hatch is what you want to do to get the new ring set seated.
If you hear pinging at a steady throttle speed you will need at least a octane booster, pinging typically doesn't happen on acceleration only under loads at constant speeds. Good luck with it and YES you will notice a power increase from higher cylinder pressure !! (Pressure is Power)
