With so many twin cams on the road, more and more Evos are finding themselves back on showroom floors or in the classified ads. While the Evo is a great motor, in its stock form it just can’t measure up to the performance of a stock twin cam. We decided to take a trip over to Lifestyle Cycles in Anaheim, California, and see what its main performance guy, Larry Hardy, and his Performance Techniques shop could do with a ’96 Heritage.
Hardy is known throughout the industry for his vast knowledge on how to turn a stock motor into a real performer. He is a whiz when it comes to headwork, and over the years, has come up with quite a few performance techniques — no pun intended — on how to get Evo motors up to speed with the twin cams. Hardy had a lot in store for this performance package, which includes his headwork techniques, a new cam, new pistons, new pipes, a new ignition, and a new carb. Follow along as we watch him work his magic.
