Engine performance can be altered drastically by porting your cylinder (2-cycle) or head (4-cycle). The skilled engine builders at LaBaron's Power Sports have years of experience modifying cylinders and heads to squeeze every drop of horsepower out of them.

Q: How effective is porting on its own?
A: There are more horsepower benefits for 2-strokes. 4-Strokes require other modifications to maximize the porting work (exhaust, camshafts, high compression pistons, etc.)
Q: What kind of horsepower gains can I expect?
A: Typical results are 2-4 horsepower.
Q: Is it possible to lose horsepower porting?
A: We have seen several amateur porting jobs that were ported incorrectly. Substandard porting usually can not be reversed. A new cylinder or cylinder head must be purchased.
