Mate, I have a better idea, my motor is hotted up & has heaps of balls.
ported, polished & worked head
polished bores
good pistons & all the internals
hotted up carby
mild cam
extractors into a 2 1/2 exhaust
& some other stuff that I can't remember.
its on petrol & gas
motor is blueprinted, it was built for a comp truck.
there is more done to the motor but its got a lot more power then a stock standard TB42
The best thing about all this is that you can rev it as hard as you want & it don't hurt it, I have had it up to 6000rpm so far.
doing any 1 of these things to your motor should help.
Hope this helps

If its running on gas or dual fuel, get it set up properly....big enough gas system is an imperitive, some sort of dual curve ignition is a must..

So many gas systems are not as good as they can be.....years back I drove cabs..and most of them where slugs and dogs...mots where average some simply horid..... because the owners would not spend the time and money to get them right.....the last cab I drove went like a rocket....damn it was agorgeous thing.......hardly any difference between petrol and gas and it did not suffer in any department...people would not belive it was running on gas.....4 wheel disks and police pack suspension..but I digress

Before you do another thing...get an opinion off a gass mechanic who realy knows his stuff.


cheers
