Welcome aboard, bolotec!

If you're looking for more power just head into the "Engine" section, there have been many people who have asked the exact some question. You should be able to find anything you want. It seems that, at least from my perspective, the current standard seems to be a reground cam from Schneider Cams, double valve springs from the same company, and a Weber Redline K740 kit, (It's a 32/36 DGEV (electric choke) carb with adapter plate (99004.250 is the part number). Though you could buy the individual parts much cheaper than throwing down the $300 for the kit. (i.e. $100 for a 32/36 on Craigslist and the adapter plate for around $45)

Good luck!

Sure thing! There are several threads in the "Engine" section of the forum talking about the different cams and what they can do. So if you are wondering which cam would be right for you, just read through some of the other builds. Below are a few of them I found real quick:

Elcano's Schneider Camshaft Question

Und-R-Steer's Want Power? GET CAMS! Post

Pops' Cutting Cam Post


Each one has a little information, hope it helps.

Well which Weber kit do you have? Do you have the 32/36 Progressive or the 38/38 Outlaw? The 38/38 is going to make more power of course, and coupled with the right cam/springs, you could make a lot more power.

Probably BRD brand. Upgrade to a 38/38 carb along with a hotter cam for more power.
