Do you think the roll off of power at redline is due to head flow limitations, valve size, cam profile, a combination? Just wondering where the best bang for the buck is to get more power out.

Thanks
damn reading that made me dizzy

You know what? This will decimate all, after, you put about fifteen grand in it or more. If we have to, overnight parts from Japan.
