Well, ask your self this question.
Do you need more power?
If yes then send it in.

Save the $100 and get a 9853 pipe and sum glow plugs instead. If you need bottom end snap, use 1.1 clutch springs. Sometimes too much power is a bad thing.

I would have it done myself, not only for the extra power, but the extended runtimes.

I had a Hot Mods 367. That engine hauled some serious ass. I was hitting everyone in the rear end until I got used to the power. Unfortunatly I leaned on her too hard a couple times while the pinch was still tight and wore the rod and crank pin out.

On the NR 7 ports, its easy to go too lean. They keep getting faster and faster, so also set the HSN for just what you need.

I meant leanin on it as in the throttle too much. I would keep it pinned down a long straightaway, the engine just kept pulling, so I kept mashing. It was only about 1.5 gallons old when I was doing this. Right around 2.5 gallons it wouldnt stay running for even a lap. I tore it apart and found the sloppy rod and egg shaped crankpin. I wish I would have taken my time on break-in and waited till the pinch was loosened up a little, but I didnt know that then.
