With my G9 I did all the tricks there is to the stock engine. I had it every
which way, and it ran great, but still a small engine. By far the best upgrade
I have ever done is the 18 v-twin from CPP. This is my 2nd year with it and
it is great. With 24" tires it's about 36-38 mph and the torque is awesome. I
could get more top end with a set of high speed gears but I'm happy with the
performance the way it is. Hill climbing (steep hills) no problem at all. Offroad
trails, dirt, mud lots of fun!!!!!!! If you do much more than this you will have
to start thinking about better brakes!!!

Tom knows his stuff with those big block kits, I think you could order it, install it, and drive it. No worries about anything not working.

That kit is the way to go! Everything all together for you and all the buggs worked out. If we can ever lure the Badboy out of Ohio, we might have a real chance to check it out!

That would be better answered by Tom at CPP 1-888-861-2640. I believe it
will be the same as the G9.
