1) ThunderMax tuner. This is the one that Trask uses for almost all their turbos. It's good. Get it.
2) Pingel Electric Shifter. Also very good.
3) Trask engine brace & Trask Billet Oil Pan.
4) Trask ARP Engine Bolt Kit.
5) Upgraded clutch pack from Trask. Same H-D clutch basket is fine.
6) Trask fuel pump, injectors, and fuel rail.
7) Trask 58mm throttle body.
8) Trask Turbo Kit.
9) Dyno tuned at Trask in Phoenix to 165 RWHP & if I recall around 117 RWTQ. Good reliable dependable power. Bulletproof.
This is a good combination. I had a lot of additional mods. Check my posts. And you are on the right track.
1. Thundermax.....junk. Either a DTT or better yet get a PowerVision and find a real tuner that knows how to scale map values within a 1 bar table for boost (it's totally possible/done with great success).
2. Pingel: You drag racing? If not, consider the fact that it's about a grand just for that shifter. For the street, completely not needed.
3. Engine brace and oil pan: Engine brace...ok. The engine braces left on the market are decent....the "good" ones are long gone (Kaarza and HolyMoto) unfortunately. Can't hurt, but not ideal. The oil pan? Not needed (and if I recall it reduces ground clearance a bit).
4. ARP kit: At your boost levels (i.e. stock Trask kit) you won't be lifting heads or stressing stock rod bolts.
5. Clutch: Barnett carbon kit and IF you can score a billet basket even better.
6. Fuel pump/injectors/rail: There are many plug and play injectors available for our bikes...no need for the "upgraded" rail.
7. 58mm throttle body: Don't. Tons of reasons all over this forum.
8. Trask turbo kit: Now this is MY opinion...but that "kit" is really low end. The lack of true fabrication and fitment speaks for itself. IF I was going the turbo route on these bikes (and I think that should only be if you are drag racing, otherwise the superchargers make more sense on the street) I'd look into a custom build. It will likely cost the same in the end and be built to a much higher level of quality and sensibility (sideways intercooler anyone...I digress).
9. Dyno: Ask around (the forums and in the real world) what level of spark knock the turbo guys are seeing. You'll find out real quickly that few shops that tune bikes know what that means and worse have no way to detect it because most of the turbo guys chose the "better" aftermarket ecms (you can hear my sarcasm right?). Search the forums on this...I have preached enough on this for a few days of reading.
