Where to get my bung hole welded

So I plan to get a power commander V and WBC2 for the grom in the upcoming month. I'll need a o2 sensor bung tapped and welded, recommends?

No PCV, no WBC2... you need T.P. for your bunghole.

Every fraction of a hp matters on a grom. Think about it .5hp is a 5% increase in power.

You need to dyno this thing before and after so I can calculate $/hp ratio.

For $1k, I'd rather get a big bore kit. I find it hard to believe fueling alone could give you that much of a performance boost.

Here's a 160cc kit that looks interesting. Even comes with it's own ECU system. No substitute for cubic inches.

cc stands for cubic centimeter but I agree, there is no replacement for displacement.

That's basically the same thing, maybe a few hundred $ less, I think like $600

Yes that's another option.

I'm waiting for a little longer term reliability test on Bbk's before I make that jump.

Too many significant digits. You can't use that level of precision when only give a 160cc number. But if you could it would be 9.7638 as the conversion factor gives you 9.763799 and in this case you would round instead of truncate.

Honestly, as long as you're speaking in terms of volume, I don't see why it matters if you say "160cc" and then give some random quote in terms of "cubic inches". Like you point out, simple conversion.

For the amount of money he's talking about (especially as a % of original purchase price), I didn't want to short-change him those extra few digits, however insignificant they are. I have no excuse on the truncation vs. rounding error though. You got me there.
