Hay team any one have info on putting 995 liners and pistons in a 1996 Thunderbird whats power increases and what tips and what else do i need to know cheers
Man, that's some seriuos mods, now you got me tempted! Would be awsome to see a Dyno of that in the future. How hard was it to convert to fuel injection?I have done the coversion to both my thunderbirds. I am using the original blue cams and about 12: 1 compression ratio. (both bikes have been converted to fuel injection and 6 speed gearbox )
I think it was worth it there is a lot more torque and the bike pulls well through out the rev range. Sorry no dyno figures, but it will give a lot of the newer bikes a good run for their money through twisty corners
As stated above you will need to completely disassemble the engine to get the upper crank case machined out to accept the bigger liners. Dont forget to take the original liners with you so that machinest can work out the tolerences.
After that you will need to rejet the carbs.
