I will also give the PC V a thumbs up......but the Dyno Jets maps are Junk!!!!!!!!!!! Have found very few that have had any luck running them as posted. Many of the maps are way off.

Spend some time looking at the EFI section of this forum to help form your own opinion. Regardless of what you are going to purchase, it's going to require some tuning, especially for the Muscle.

I seen you posted about having the V&H's installed.....so what are you using now to tune for the slip-on's?????? Need a tuner more for the pipes then adding a filter or going topless.

I have the V&H's on mine with the PC V and find it great. Had it Dyno'd though. If you think you get f#@ked over in Canada you should try New Zealand!! We get stuff all to choose from and what we do get is so expensive.

Just switched to the VRFI with auto tune and no maps to worry about. Load a base map and set the a/f ratios where you want them and ride. You don't have to worry about finding a place to stuff extra boxes because it replaces your ECM. JMHO.

No offense but that is what I would expect a dealer to say.

And to make it even worse we have to deal with AMPS {Auckland motors and power sports]the only dealer in Auckland.They only sell PC and failed miserably when they tried to tune my Super tuner as they didnt have the right software,i had to take it 2hrs south to another HD dealer.

Not to put you in a panic but V&H recommends some type of fueler to be used with their slip ons and 2 into 1 exhausts. If not reading their site closely you will miss it. It says "fuel maps available".

I cannot find the fuel maps available on their site! Where are they?
