NO , NO , NO Revtech!

Probably about the same money to but a complete S&S motor , or have a Sidewinder kit put in your cases.

As for retitling , depends on your states DMV laws. The frame has the VIN , the motor has a partial VIN. Aftermarket motors come with a Manufacturer's Statement of Origin. Ya can either file paperwork and get a reconstructed title , or simply swap motors , carry a copy of the MSO and receipt to show to , and tell any cop who actually knows the motor ain't original , that ya intend to replace the original motor if ya ever sell the bike.

The motor in my Panhead is an STD cased , S&S filled 93" stroker. I carry a copy of the MSO with me. The original motor is sitting on a stand in my living room. Cracked cases and all.

It might be legal for you to stamp your motor numbers in the new motor cases as long as you DO NOT alter or remove any manufacturer stamped numbers.

There's no attempt to commit fraud and ya can prove legal ownership of everything.

For the cost of the S&S, you could build one amazing EVO out the engine you have. Bearing whine at 44k? I'm thinking the whine you are hearing is an inner voice for more power.

nope...some kinda whine coming from the front right side. not real loud...kinda felt more than heard?? sounds weird, but it kinda sounds like if the cylinder wasn't getting oil and the rings were scraping on metal kind of sound. real light, but it just started last month and thank God we got some snow this week (all gone now) cause I'm scared to death I'm gonna grenade it

I put the crane h-286-2b in advanced. I gained nice torque and hp. My friends with stage 1 TC-88's would leave my stage 1 big time after 75 mph in hard throttle ups. By the time i hit 100 they were gone gone gone!!

After the cam I had no issues keeping up. The next year I put wisco 10:1 pistons in and now I pull away from them. Now I'm patently waiting to get my heads back from the porter. I knew I was going to bump the compression other wise I'd gone with the crane 310. I still get 45-52 mpg. It depends on speed hills, two up. Pulling my bunk house trailer, OUCH I get 38-42. One reason for the head work.

Just change the cam in my opinion, along with the stage 1.

Replace the cam and bearing (modest upgrade)

1) Revtech 110" Evo motor for $4900...


2) S&S 96" big bore stroker kit for $3700 and a shop to do the install, which I have no idea how much more that would cost

was thinkin to just do the cam, bearing, dynojet kit for the carb, new air cleaner, and better flowing pipes, but I figured if I was unhappy with this, it'd be like throwing money away. any suggestions?

do most of my riding on back roads of WI with my wife, and don't need too much power, but would like a little more torque out of the corners when I needed it
Go with a Long Block....S&S 96" w/3 year warranty! Out with the old, in with the new. Keep the old engine......

Keep the paperwork from the new engine......its only needed when you sell the bike. Nothing changes with the DMV. Re-register it as usual.
