95 or 96 ci is irrelevant. Point I'm interested in is if he is making 132hp on a 95 or 96ci displacement, shouldn't our 106's be capable of 130+ without a displacement change???
Sure, the 106 can make 140 HP... what it will take is high compression, lots of headwork including larger valves, much more aggressive cams, larger intake manifold, larger throttle body, larger injectors, an open air box, and a kick-ass exhaust system.
Kyle has a 100" that makes 135 HP, but it spins to 7000+ rpm and it has no low end torque.
Here's an example....
Rob has a big bore (113.something inches) that is Nikasil (Star racing/George Bryce). It has worked big-valve heads, big throttle bodies, and HPT cams. He makes 143 HP and 135 Tq and the torque peak is around 5000 rpm.
My 116 (114.something inches) has stock heads and valve sizes, stock throttle bodies, and .495 S&S cams. I make 132 HP and 144 Tq and the torque peak is around 4000 rpm.
What his additional work did was reverse the numbers. His work was EXPENSIVE.
Here's the thing... In order to get the heads off a Victory the engine has to come out of the frame. If you have the engine out and the jugs off... the cost difference between just putting high compression pistons in it and putting a big bore kit in it is very small. You are already buying pistons, you are already buying rings, gaskets, etc... the only thing you need to make the inches happen is to re-sleeve the jugs.
You need to decide what YOU want from the bike. Inches make TORQUE.
2 things to remember:
IT'S NOT A HARLEY. It will respond very differently to modifications than a Harley does.
The iron liner big bore is proven. There is nothing to be afraid of, just warm it up to full operating temperature before you beat on it. I've been running a Lloydz iron motor since 2008 with no issues. The 110" version ran 11.40s at the track with 92,000 miles on the odometer. It only got rebuilt because the transmission broke.
