I'm looking to add some more power performance to my 117 aNY suggestions on where to start
it's fast and powerful enough what you looking to achieve?
Idk haha its just never enough for me
I must be getting old!
My 117 will get me to 70 quick enough too lol
The only question is how deep are your pockets?
Chasing HP is going to leave it's Mark on your wallet.
But if you got the coin send your Motor to John Sachs, he will do it up proper. Some day I'd like to have him redo my heads.
Cheap way throw in a 585 cam and a programmable ignition. About $500 in parts and shipping

Eric is absolutely correct...but make sure you have opened up your intake and exhaust first.
Seeing as how you have an 05 Ridge, you most likely have the restrictor plates also. Mine had them and I took them out. Also you might want to update your rocker boxes to S&S if you haven't already done that and like Eric said have John make things right and throw in a 585 cam and programmable ignition. All these things will wake that puppy up!
I put a 585 cam in mine...it rocks, gas mileage suffered a bit but WTF
Where are the restricor plates
Any suggestion on who to go through for the camera and ignition
I agree dig deep and send it to Sachs racing. If you do it yourself contact Curtis at Wildsteedworx he is a member on here and an S&S dealer.
A 585 cam will give you the biggest bang for the buck for $200 if you do it yourself, My personal thoughts on the TH programmable ignition was that I didn't feel a difference, maybe a dyno tune would dial it in, but the seat dyno for me wasn't there.
Don't forget a hi perf. exhaust!

They're located at your intake manifold, one on the forward head and one at the aft head.
It really wakes the Beast Up!!!

Fwiw, the 117 was taken towards the top end of specs from the factory. Its been pushed almost as far as it can be already. Remember, when you start to tinker with crap, you generally end up with a tinker toy. Have fun....
If your ride is stock then:
CAM: 585 or 600. If you plan on doing future upgrades to the motor then 600
Thunderheart Programmable Ignition Module
S&S Special G carb
Pipes: Vance Hines Big Radius or R&B Racing(not sure if they make them for RSD though)
Keeo in mind the DSSC system, what you have on your ride, is only rated for 120hp so if you exceed that be prepared for repairs.
