    Brand & model: Unorthodox Racing Ultra-S Crank Pulley
    Price paid and from where: $80
    HP/TQ Gains: +8hp depending on mods
    Pros: Underdriven Aluminum Crank Pulley - basic install
    Cons: Hard to find! Crank pulley bolt can sometimes be very difficult to loosen.
    Final verdict: Great bolt-on for some hp gains.

    Brand & model: Kaizenspeed Balance Shaft Eliminator kit
    Price paid and from where: $150
    HP/TQ Gains: +8hp depending on mods
    Pros: Deletes balance shafts and additional belt drag. Engine revs easier. Reasonable cost.
    Cons: Moderae level install - may need machine shop assistance and engine needs to be apart.
    Final verdict: Great way to gain a bit more power if doing a full motor build.

    Brand & model: Wiseco Piston kit (-5cc) 86.5mm Forged
    Price paid and from where: I traded for over $600 worth of parts
    HP/TQ Gains: These are custom made to order, gains will vary based on bore and piston dome specs.
    Pros: Quality forged material and design - Rings have sealed properly with no issues.
    Cons: Requires machine work, engine build. Not cheap.
    Final verdict: Great way to get the compression desired.
