The 184/185 series Cubs had higher compression, and a considerably higher horsepower rating. But the governor was set up to run at a higher RPM also.
Pappy had a Cub he mowed with commercially back in the '60's, and he bought a 50T baler strictly for the Cub engine on it. The baler/power unit version of the C-60 engine was governed at 2250-2400 rpm. The baler governor assembly was swapped over to Pappy's Cub, and that tractor really came to life.
So if you want to look about jacking the power up on your Cub, the "secrets" have to do with more compression and higher rpm...kinda like the "big-boy" pullers.
[Side note: One evening on the way to a regular mowing job, Pappy saw that the local school corporation had their Cub out mowing a lot they owned along the street. Just for grins, Pappy wheeled his Cub off the street, and fell in behind the school's tractor, shifted into 2nd gear and started mowing behind but beside him. Pappy's Cub caught up with the school's tractor, and Pappy mowed right past him, came out at the cross street, raised the mower and shifted the PTO out, dropped his Cub into 3rd, and continued down the street. A week later, the head of maintenance at the school convinced the board that THEIR Cub was "just too small," and bids were taken on a new 140 with a Woods 59.]
