For instance - step by step guide, recommended tools, and bits that are needed.

Tuning I feel I have down, I'm talking about internals.

Some also modify the conrod to recieve more RPM but this will shorten the life of the conrod.

Case clearancing, Cutting the crank, piston, sleeve and rod. The only way you can shorten the life of the rod is if you over rev it and break it.

www.affordablenitrotech.com

I found some articles on there, and performed the mods to a couple of engines.

Needless to say, I now have a little O.S. .12 CV that scares me!
