Mark, in the technical section I believe there is a link to yz cam timing instructions that are very straight forward. I just did mine and changed from stock jetting to DVP needle #4, 180 main and kept 45 pilot. Works great so far.

with my 2000 wr it opened up a whole bag of whoop-ass in the mid and upper rpm's. the low end felt about the same, maybe a little more power but nothing to write hame about. i ride mostly trails and it did make it a bit more of a handful in the tight stuff but when the trail opens up i am very glad i did it :). it definetly gives at least 3-5 hp but it felt like 5! bonez

You won't need any gasket parts, or engine parts, but you will probably need jets. Quite a few. I have taken the lid off the check the valve clearances, and I will be retiming mine sometime REALLY soon as well (waiting for parts in mail). I bought a DVP needle, a 100 PAJ, and a 48 PJ. I am already running a 175 main. That should get me close... if you have the jetting stuff go for it.
