Hyper Mods Advice

The boss is thinking of modifying the combine (1996 R62 Custom Harvester Special) before wheat harvest (June 1 (3 weeks early)) and was wondering what mods give you the best bang for the buck?

If all the mods are installed what kind of performance increase should we expect?

I am looking through the list and was wondering which ones to start with.

How much of a different animal? Does anyone have numbers of the actual increase?

From my own homework ive done it seems the Feeder floor mod is the best bang or your buck. As far as numbers, idk numbers but from what I can remember it will take a slow running 2 series and it'll keep up with a JD STS and and CIH while using 15-25% less fuel than any competitor.

Best comparison I can come up with when comparing a stock 2 series w/o any hyper mods to one that has every hyper mod done to it is like a bone stock turbo diesel (250-300hp) from the factory compared to a modded out 3/4 ton sled puller with 500+hp. Ya put a chip/turbo/injectors on em they are a completely different animal.

I'd do every mod and ya wouldnt ever look back.

Feed floor first as redline says, then steep pitch helicals in thresher area with filler over corner of feed discharge. On the rotor as an option to the high-low setup, run all forward bars, with a set of sweeps and do the discharge end of the rotor like hyper says. So far I don't need the rasp bar bolted to the cage and I don't know how this setup works in corn. Anything you do is better than nothing, but if you are going to be in there anyway, why not do it all?
