That's kinda what I'm afraid of with the a35 I got on the bench right now... Part of me really wants to go ham on it but I've ported a couple that just straight up ripped with super minor mods.
I also got a chance to ride the v1 as it is with the stock cylinder ported last week and it's really not bad, 35 and I haven't even put a pipe on it yet. A little clutch tuning and a 12 front, with the proma circuit and I might already be in the 40s.
I just love building fast stockers, I could do it all day... But they all just sit in the barn and I grab one of my kitted maxis almost every time to ride. Maybe I just need to build faster stockers
