Do you have a Dyno on the motor? You need to stay in the power band and should run at least 1000 RPM more than the RPM at which your peak torque...this is what will kill your drive...running to close to your peak torque. If you step up to a 24P you will loose 400 RPM and 800 ish if you went to a 26P. You really need to run at the RPM close to your peak HP .
