Did meet your goals with this build?

Was the cost inline with the usual $100 per hp/tq gained?

All good choices.

Yeah, its at least $200 per HP if you do it as a normally aspirated engine. Not sure what the cost per HP is with say a blower or turbo charger. I guess nitrous is also an option for cheap HP. Not my style though.
Regardless she screams now. 0 to 60 in a heartbeat.... :D

Edited to say, If you do all the wrenching yourself you probably could do it for $100 per HP. The $200 per I paid includes a whole lotta labor....

Nitros on a stock HD engine is just asking for the the rod bearings, etc to turn to mush if you're adding much of a spray & hitting 5k+ RPMs.

Not my cup of tea either.

Go with the blower. We can add 6/8 lbs of boost on you bike. Your bike will make 150 plus hp no prob...... all day...... 10.5 1 comp.
My 2 cents
I guess you misunderstood my comments. I'm not looking for anymore horsepower. I'm good to go. I was only suggesting other approaches to big horsepower gains that might be more economical. Regardless, glad to provide you once again an opportunity to promote your business....
