Don't do it!breakl8 said:Is anyone out there running only the V-Mod exhaust w/o the Powercommander or K&N? If so, how do thew perform? Iwould perfer to start with just getting the pipes and running them and then upgrade from there. Will I have any problem doing that? Any opinions?
Wish I'd done that about 1500$ ago. Good advice.mjw930 said:Breakl8,
Doing just the pipes is marginal at best, not something I would recommend. If you're cost concious then here's the best overall solution.
V-Mods - $150
SE Air Filter - $52 (20% discount)
HD Race Fueler - $179 (20% discount at Hales HD, Chicago HD, etc., No splicing, etc.) (TFI box retails for $189 so you might be able to find one for $160 online)
Best bang for the buck and you'll be able to switch pipes without adding anything, just retune the race fueler.
Ask the dealer?? Like they know anything about anything. Both Steve @ V-Mod and reportedly BPP say it's ok to run just the pipes (not the filter!) w/o a remap. I'm not saying it's a great solution but it's fine if you're upgrading in stages.glz said:just ask the dealer... V-MODs are free-r flowing than the SE pipes. The SE pipes they REQUIRE a flash. How anyone could conclude anything else is hard to understand.
Really, I think we are all telling you the same thing. Change the pipes, change your fuel setup. Either a flash, a PC, or a RT but you need to correct for the free-r flowing pipes.
I wish I knew that before I plugged that RT in for the first time! With the stock 04 map for K&N and SE pipes mine runs worse than it used to with PCIIIR.mjw930 said:From what I've learned the Race Tuner and PCIII are only for those who want to really get into a lot of dyno tuning. It's overkill for 90% of us.
