I presume you replaced your stock jets with better flowing ones after fitting the k&n, If you havent then you've been running the engine leaner than the already lean factory standards. A classic symptom would be an overheating engine, with detonation problems.
Port polishing and stuff you could get done from guys who do car engine jobs, although the only philosophy most of them follow is make all holes bigger and mirror polish intake and exhaust for maximum flow, but that isnt it at all.
I've been reading about running gasoline engines on methanol and it seems like a really cool idea to get more bang. Only problem seems to be that methanol eats metal and rubber, atleast that's what i read. But 20-30% jump in power should be worth it right?
