At the rpm the two engines operate, how you actuate the valves is of little consequence. Pushrods are fine below 7000 rpm.
The Indian 111 is like a Briggs & Stratton lawnmower engine. No valve angle (valves are vertical).
The Victory engine will make in excess of 135 HP with the STOCK HEADS and STOCK THROTTLE BODY. This is why they don't have the low end grunt of Harley and Indian... The heads are TOO GOOD!
Additionally, a single throttle body on a "Y" intake will make more power at part throttle so they FEEL strong in normal riding, but if you open it up nothing happens, the engine has no legs.
Victory Stage 1 Tri-Oval Exhaust or Victory Stage 1 Round Exhaust (required and sold separately), this combined kit generates 20 percent more horsepower and 10 percent more torque than the already potent stock Freedom 106 engine.
This is a blurb about the stage 2 Victory S&S package including cams and air dam... used with the stage 1 air filter and Tri Oval mufflers (sold separately!)… 20% more power.
However, that works out to a little over 100 HP.
Any decent aftermarket set-up with cams will make closer to 115 HP or almost 40% more power... in other words fuck a factory performance package, they suck.
