Why would you want to?
If you buy better flowing heads, bigger cams, and hot ignition system , you can run around 100 to 150 hp and about the same torque to the rear wheel.
How big is your wallet willl depend on how much. I will get the website to you just give me some time.

Revolution Performance

NRHS

AXTELL

All are very good quality.....

Our shop does a lot of business with Revolution Perf, and their Nicasel (sp?) cylinders are flawless....

Myself, I like NRHS, as they are friendlier on shop pricing....

Axtell is built for super/extreme duty motors... The original Bulletproof motors in my book...

Yes, it is possible to bore out a 1200, but not by much. I think the limit for boring is 1212 cc's compared to stock 1203cc's. It's not worth it IMO. I would just go with other engine upgrades.

There is a performance co that sells a 1250 conversion kit for the 883. Don't remember the co, but I'm sure someone on here will. Given enough time and money....anything is possible. Well, almost.

That would be us! Just let us know what you are after. We have some real money saving kits that can pretty much get you wherever you want to go.

Thanks!
