    you dont gain hp by forging a motor. forging the motor only makes the engine stronger so that it can handle higher levels of hp/trq. the only mods that add hp are Intakes, ehaust, port n polish the head, cams because they change the way the air flows in and out of the engine, superchargers, and...
