I just put one in mine. Haven't gotten a chance to see what it'll do though. 2* is pretty safe from what I was reading.

I'm putting a 2 degree key in my D&D 901,DynoTech said i'd get a better burn across the piston surface.

Yep, I just plan on running 93 in it at all times. But from what I've read that isnt required for the 2* key, def cant hurt though.

yeah thats another thing premium only and it seems a little more snappy, one thing i did notice with mine is it likes the higher r's more but it is safe to run it 4* is the most you ever wanna go is what my local dealer told me

the carbed sleds are the ones that like more timing. You usually run the bigger keys in those. 2 is about all I would do in a EFI and trail ride it. Personally with today's garbage gas, I would stay with stock timing.

I have a 2.5* in my 06 EFI F7. It was totally worth it.

Did you notice a difference with the D&D pipe? I still have stock pipe on my F7. I will more then likely buy a pipe this winter.
