if you want more speed, try a different prop. a good carbon fiber prop should outperform that apc.

Having got that off my chest, why are you chasing rpm specifically? In the top end engines (one of which is the one you are posting about) you would do yourself much better to prop it to within the power band and use an appropriate exhaust system rather than messing with the porting. When you say you are chasing more RPM, why is that?
If it is because your plane isn't going fast enough for your liking, you may be more satisfied going to a higher pitch prop. If it is because you want an engine that absolutely wrings out and lets you go very fast, I would suggest you speak with Ralph Cunningham (Antique on these forums) and ask him his opinion on what to use as I know for sure he would be able to give some great advice. You can most likely sell the 3W to fund the new product.

Ok, that is my $0.02 (0.128 RMB)
Who is Ralph Cunningham?

Ralph Goes by the name of "Antique" on these forums.

He is one of the most experienced Gas engine people for our hobby out there and he knows his performance engines very well. Many of the other experienced people have been started out by Ralph as he has been working on our engines for a very very long time indeed. There would be very few he hasn't experienced at some time or another.

I don't have contact details for him right here but maybe someone will be able to supply them to you.

Best prop for speed on a 55-65 cc engine is made by APC for our USRA G62 powered AT6s..A stock 62 with an open header turns 9000 in the air, the 3W should do as well.Take a ride to Rabbit Dry Lake near Victorville the weekend of 10-15 and see some 55-65cc P51s racing about 130 mph with these props...
