You can get really good low/ mid range power with the 255 and ported heads and stock compression for your Glide. The SE255 respond well with head work.

Get some head work done by a reputable builder/tuner.Get a Woods cam & a good tune using the TTS mastertune.I would also change the baffle to the performance baffle.

If your are looking for even more, take a peek at the Wood 400G.
Bigger brother of the 6, 7H, 6H.
Roller rockers arms will be needed.

We are very pleased with results of the Woods TW5-6 chain drive cams with your exact set up head work is a must! also consider the S/E 50 mm throttle body at 400 bucks its a good investment. With a good tune your 103 will surprise even bigger motors

what compression do you like for the TW 5-6 on the baggers and two up riding, running 91 octane gas?
Thanks

I would estimate somewhere around 9.5:1. Ask the cam
manufacturer to be sure.

with any of the woods .575/.590 cams 5,6hg,7 you want to shoot for 190psi ccc with a good tune. for the 5 that would be 9.9.

It all depends on what you want to spend and if you can do your own work or not. Some cams should have cylinder head work to bring them to life and some may need different pistons. Then remember you will need the retune.

Two other great choices are the Andrews 54 and the R&R525G with the 525 being my pick if your willing to go gears. Great cam to build off of with head work.
