TB 178cc Big Bore Kit, Race Head V2, and Intake Manifold Kit – This is the final step in power gains as far as cylinder size goes. Like the 165cc kits, installation of this kit requires engine dis-assembly and case boring. The engine cases cant safely be bored any bigger and for this 67mm cylinder, you definitely will want an experienced shop to bore your cases. You can also add a stroker crank and take it up to 194cc – Massive power! This kit is for the serious racer and if just looking for more fun on your Z125, we recommend the either the 143cc or 165cc kits.
The parts in this kit were developed to work flawlessly with each other to deliver a high level of performance at an affordable price. While we sell each part of this kit separately, running the combination of the big bore kit, race head, and intake kit is where you will see the most power and performance gains for the best value. These are high quality parts and the increased power will not disappoint. Here’s whats included in this kit:
178cc Big Bore Kit:
- 67mm Ceramic coated all aluminum cylinder (no steel sleeve)
- Lightweight high compression 67mm piston with rings, pin, & clips (will safely run on pump gas, 90-93 octane)
- Head gasket kit – Now includes the cylinder head o-ring set and an exhaust gasket.
The all aluminum ceramic coated cylinder is not only lighter than a steel sleeved aluminum cylinder, it is harder, reduces friction (increasing power), improves sealing, and provides better heat transfer (runs cooler and cools down quicker). This kit requires case boring for installation.
Race Head V2:
- Forged anodized aluminum roller rockers
- Huge 30mm intake and 24.5mm exhaust valves
- Stainless Steel Valves (21-4N material)
- 27mm intake port, 23mm exhaust port
- Race Camshaft V2-2 (TBW0577)
- Cam Sprocket
The combination of the above features in this Race Head V2 deliver huge power gains over the stock basic OEM cylinder head.
Intake Manifold Kit:
- Port matched to the Race Head V2
- Enlarged 26mm port on throttle body side to work better with bored throttle bodies (also works well with stock throttle body)
- Includes a port matched heat stop to prevent heat transfer to the intake (cannot run a heat stop with the stock intake manifold and some aftermarket head spacers)
- Includes all mounting hardware
- Includes a heat sensor extension harness so it can be relocated to the tappet or cam cover.
This intake manifold will ensure you will get the most power out of the Race Head V2!
Add a stroker crankshaft for even more power! Our 55mm stroker crank increases engine displacement and compression. If you add it to the:
143cc Big Bore Kit, will increase displacement to 155cc
165cc Big Bore Kit, will increase displacement to 177cc
178cc Big Bore Kit, will increase displacement to 194cc
(Available in the Z125 shop section)
Installation requires engine dis-assembly and case boring. Therefore, we highly recommend a professional technician install this kit and the cases bored by a reputable machine shop. Its also recommended that a professional technician make sure its tuned properly once installed. An aftermarket fuel controller is required and possibly an autotune will be needed to prevent a lean condition and damage to your engine. Additionally, a performance exhaust is also recommended as the stock exhaust is restrictive and may cause your engine to run hotter.
