Thanks for the information. Sorry for the delay.

Your engine can be uprated to a 550 HP with no iron changes. You would only need to have the engine ECM reflashed to a 550 File. 550 is the highest it can go. The Flash process only takes a dealer 1 hour to complete.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.

I'm going to have to have a overhaul done on the engine. Is there anything I can change that will help me get to 600+hp.
Expert:  Cat Man replied 1 year ago.

Yes you can.

Since you are overhauling the engine. The BXS can go to 600 hp. The 600 hp takes different piston cam and turbos. Since you are rebuilding it. You can order the Cat kit that has the parts for a 600 and then have the ECM reflashed.
