The REVO likes to Rev-o ( and split eardrums ) !

V&Hines says that is a serviceable stock baffle so I can only imagine you can add or replace the muffler packing around the core baffle itself and stuff it back in there, then re-install the quiet baffle. My Bub 7 2-1 pipe core came with no packing around the baffle, I used stainless steel screen first, stainless wool second and wrapped that with fiberglass packing. I'm not sure how much backpressure it provides but to me the rattle and unnecessary noise reduction allow you to use higher RPM more easily with no ear splitting that tends to make you short shift it, and not get in the power. The Revo likes to rev-o ! I put an 1/4 inch outlet diameter reducer on my pipe to provide additional backpressure, but you will get that from your quiet baffle, and your cruise sound will be really bearable.

velocity stacks can make a huge difference in power..the length and taper are important as well as the entry...the entry can be extremely important...try to straighten the air flow into the stack entrance...i have seen more than 5hp with modifications there...i won`t give specifics just know that there is hp to be found and chase it

talk to Ray

Ok before you tell me to search I have already read for hours on the topic.

Im opening this topic again for 2 reasons, first I cant seem to find a clear answer, second most posts on the topic are several years old.

I recently purchased a 2013 muscle with 3800 miles, previous owner did the stage 2 roughly 200 miles ago confirmed by lancaster harley davidson before I purchased it.

Set up is as follows: Stage 2 cams, screaming eagle tuner,53mm throttle body, short stacks, modified air box using templates TOP ON, K&N air filter, vance and hines 2into1 competition exhaust

Im not concerned about max HP although the extra is kindly received but im willing to leave some HP on the table if I can gain low and mid power, i would have bought the bike with out the cams.

First Question is Short Stacks or Factory Uneven Stacks

Second Question
is if I switch out the stacks should i take it to veerlands and have it tuned or buy a daytona tech autotune

I called veerlands to talk about my questions and the person i talked to really wouldnt answer me just said bring it and we will put it on the dyno, wouldnt even say if i should bring the old stacks
When you talk to Vreelands you are at the right spot for the best maps you can get.

stag 2 cams came with the short stacks, Harley did that for a reason, use them.
Ray will tune your bike better then anyone in the usa.
They have been racing vrods for years and know every trick in the book. I have had my parts and bike there.

The Vreelands, Rich and Ray are great peoples. You will not be disappointed.

Both questions answered. Read up and read a lot and you will learn a lot.

save your money for a decent tuner like the DTT and pipes.ask scott fitzgerald for advice. yes i think the fuel consumption is terrible and the cams are overrated for the gains stated.i have two identical bikes bar one has st2 cams ,the other stock.unless timing with a stop watch you will be hard pushed to see the gains.however i must say most gains are to be found with proper tuning.not cams.most stock bikes are far from delivering best performance to be found with proper tuning,which needs to be done anyway with opinion.
