Default WEST tuned magnum/ASP 4 strokes

Anybody know what has been done of modifications other than the carb on these 4 strokes to give 20% more power ?

Could be nice to do the same on my ASP/PH/Magnum 4 strokes if possible


The Tuned by West Magnums have modified heads giving them approximately 20% more power,
and modified carburettors installed directly to the head giving them snappier throttle response, easier to start, eliminating flooding when inverted.

1st of all the comment about a Saito 180 not handling an 18X6 is BS.

My stock FA180 W/GI spun an 18 X 8 @ just under 8000 RPM static. A 16 X 8 would have been turning 9000 on the ground & over-reving in the air.

From the sounds of the testimonials about ease of handling I'd bet that they upped the CR, installed a larger carb & converted to CDI. It's next to impossible to raise CR W/GI & have ease of handling/starting.

For $528 I can purchase a new FA180, up the CR & convert to CDI to make 3.2 HP. Add another $96 & install a 12mm carb & it would produce 3 5 HP, probably quite a bit more than the West Tuned ASP & I have an engine that is easier to get parts for W/much higher quality, that uses LESS fuel than stock GI..

I would be leary of the RPM #s they are quoting also. 10,400 RPM from a 180 4-stroke ASP?

Yeaah, but they didn't say that they could do it twice! <G>
