Hello, I have an '04 YFZ 450 Quad, Can anyone tell me the best cam to put in it for maximum horsepower? Also I was told by a yamaha worker that if i put the dirtbike 450 head on my quad that i will pick up an extra 8 hp, is this true. I have been checking out Web Camshafts and they make a cam for the 450 yzf, but not the 450 yfz, will it work if i put the dirtbike cam in my quad.

All you need is to retard your stock exhaust cam timing:
Then put a pipe, remove the airbox lid and rejet and you will not find many quicker quads.
