If you're stunting, there's probably no reason to drop down to a 520 chain unless it is cheaper. Most people go to a 520 because they don't know any better, but the people that need a 520 chain do it because it is lighter.
You can calculate this yourself by finding the gear ratios.
(2.933-2.625)/(2.625)=11.7% increase in numerical gear ratio(your engine will have to turn 11.7% faster
TS=(RPM)(K) where TS equals top speed, RPM equals max engine RPM, and K equals a constant based upon your gear ratios.
Since max engine RPM is constant, solve for RPM, set both equations equal to each-other. Then, because 1.117(K1)=(K2), you will find that your new top speed will be 89.5% of your former top speed.
