i've just purchased a 1000 tcat engine to go into my 97 t-cat model,
and when i got the thing i wanted to know the Hp that it put out ,, and they told me that it was anything in the range of 166 to 174 cause not all machines give out the same, but he did hace a dyno and we tried mine and it said 170, so your basicly looking at that range

well they say 172 , but not all of them had 172HP , but never seen one lower then 166 stock and never higher then 174hp depends on the machine i guess. no it wouldn't be painfull death with this baby , heheh it's crash and burn if anything happens ,, won't be to much suffering there belive me.
And there is PLENTY of power in those suckers it's really crazzy

There are difference between the CDI's of the differnt years. The 2001 CDI advances the timing 3 degrees more than my 2000 (More top end) but you give up a little on the bottom. It all depends on where you want the motor to make its' power. I have both CDI's, but have decided to use the stock 2000 since most of my riding is in the mountains and I want as much low end as I can get.
