I remember a conversation with the owner of my local performance engine shop when I took my 1100 heads in for rebuild a few years ago.
Tim: Would you like me to polish and port them for you?
Me: Man, it's only an 80 horse power motor.
Tim: I can make it a hundred!
I turned it down, cos I thought he was most likely exaggerating and I was on a budget at the time anyway, but who knows? He might've had some tricks up his sleeve.
For what it's worth and if I may be so bold? The current rebuild of the `80, `81, `82 & `83 GL1100STDASPENSTATE can be followed on classicgoldwings.com in a thread called "The plan is to turn 140,000 into 50,000."
