Yes, the extra cubes will complement the head work and cam, we take the stock cylinders to 98" more often than 95" but offer both. No negative issues either way. One cube usually equals one torque or horse on a mild build.

Going bigger is a great way to up the tq. We have installed the 98 inch kit with stock heads 26 cam and had great results. Tq coming in at 100 ftlbs and 88 hp. ALl with stock ex and slip on mufflers.

If you are going to pull it apart you may as well go bigger. Cost wise it really isn't that much more, especially if you go to 95 and get your stock cylinders bored. Just don't ask about forged vs. cast pistons. You'll open up yet another endless argument about which is best, but if you want my opinion for what it's worth, cast works just fine for most people.

95" = ability to produce more than 100 Tq. with a mild build that will run forever! The SE 95" was the best running stock motor they made. I love my 103, but the work that went into getting it to run as cool and strong, the 95" was just exhaust, AC, tuner and tune. Love the 95!!!!!

I thikn it may have been one of the guys that left NHRS and started another shop. The name Aron wilson rings a bell.

Price wise our kit is back on special $475 forged CP pistons, Boring cylinders ( yours or exchange) fitted rings, and cometic top end gasket kit. This is for 95, 98, 103 and 107 kits .
