Hi There,
I have spoken to many Mechanix about doint the same thing to my EL Futura, the largest possible cam you could get is a Crow cam it costs $640. this is the largest you could possibly go without modifying your ECU. It is the next size up from the EL XR6. with a new cam i would recommed new springs. I am doing exactly this to mine but be aware it will make thw fukker idle rough and it will give you another 1000 revs. in conjunction with this mod i would also recommend gettin the head shaved about 20-25 thousands of an inch and valves enlarged. I am also chacsing an EL XR6 computer and injectors which will help to stop the rough idling. all of that will cost u approx 2k pretty cheap for a 40kw gain
