put a set of 38 mm carb on, put the 1976 star-fire pipes on, cut the intake skirt of the piston, cut the head, advance the timing, spin the motor at about 9800 rpm.

or call Mike Wienandt (WPT) @ 920/921-2552 he does a wonderful job on those Vintage Engines.

that should get you to the Winner Circle.

You actually have to get them out of storage and work on them to make them go fast. LOL That super top secret stuff that makes the exaust smell funny that you got there in the shop could help too....

Drop a 1220 CMX (Crazy Mountain Motersports) mill in it. Go with the 40.5 flat side Mikunis, twin pipes, and RCS titaniun clutch spring. Customize a carbon fiber hood, and flat top CMX seat. With the 1220 mill your gonna want to go with a 159 track. She should rip your damn arms off!

Best luck with Aaen's newest pipes. Shorten header pipe by 2mm. Run 44MM Megatrons with 44 carb boots. Run 14:1 custom cut and welded heads with some wild porting. Run Comet primary with Polaris buttom secondary. Not sure what circuit your running on. I'd recommend making a cold air intake. Actually I'd take it one step further and pressure charge your air box with fan. Poor man's turbo. Big, big power for a 340 FA!

Most Electric fans won't provide ANY boost at all. There's no PSI/pressure. More air = more fuel. Too much air will burn you fer' sure. Best bet is to invest in clutching/pipes/carbs/jetting, porting/head work if you have the money. Turbos are more for 4 strokes. Or if you really wanna go fast just get another sled!

I had a 1977 TX 340 and it was decked out with TX-L pipes and carbs.
I can't say that a Comet is any better than the Polaris unit...maybe more tuneable. All you have to do for a 'turbo' effect is spray some WD-40 in the holes of your clutch cover. This lubes up the flywheights and makes the clutch move like butter. THIS WILL NOT HURT POLARIS CLUTCHES so if anyone says any different tell them to F**k off.

I ran a 1984 SS 440 and the 77' TX and this is the cheapest mod of them all!! The only bad thing is, it wears off after a couple hours. I'm guessing that the stuff dries up and then your clutch goes back to normal again.

TRY it, i guarantee you will see a difference if you still have the Polaris clutch on it.
