That is a big difference. It will move the power band to a higher rpm, put more strain on your valves and valve spring, suck more gas and double your fun factor. Go for it!

I would have to agree with ya there, I'm for more power but you still want that xr reliability. And you have a 11/1 and a hot cam coming, that should do ya fine.
