Cut the header by about a half an inch (.5" ) to add a little to the top end. Also try running more nitro content, like 25-30% if you're using less than that.

Default 5" header cut

Yes but will this cut the acceleration down?

Cut the header about 7 mm, you get better overall performance. Tighten the springs on the clutch, and use the copper clutch springs. That will let the revs pick up so that the cut on the header won't hurt so much.
