I have the big shots staggered with the Screaming Eagle Stage I Air Filter Kit. I did like the V&H Drak but decided to keep my OEM teardrop.

I just had a conversation with some HD tech's at Milwaukee HD regarding V&H vs, HD ventilator and the heavy breather stage 1 and they said they all do pretty much the same thing and that's get more into the engine.

In regards to performance, again they said pretty equal and you'll need to get the engine remapped with some dyno time.

The biggest difference is what particular style you'd be going for. The techs said that once you get a different air cleaner and it's dynoed, should be able to switch to another brand/make of air cleaner similarly with the exception of the snorkel type air cleaner which is geared more towards racing. That's what they told me anyways....

I'm doing the V&H Power Duals and HD heavy breather and perhaps the Drak down the line.

I was told a similar thing from a local dealership....also on a side note I bought it from from a vendor for $175 shipped.....I thought it was a good deal and jumped on it....I also bought V&H short shots from the same vendor for $309 shipped.....

I've got the VO2 naked. I think it was around $115. If you go that route, you have alot of choices for a air cleaner cover. I've got a HD cover on mine...

I'm not certain if the Derby cover would be too large? However, the one I have is the HD air cleaner trim p/n 29820-11. I run it with the filter exposed. HD also makes a rain sock to cover the filter p/n28728-10 if you like. The VO2 filter is similar to the HD Stage 1 setup. I believe they are both the K & N type. The OEM cover will also work as well when you change out the filter setup if you want to retain the stock appearance. The OEM cover offers protection from potential road debris kicking up and damaging the filter element. When I changed mine out, I found alot aftermarket covers that would work but decided to stick with the HD type.

I run V02 naked with straight shot slip-ons (no baffle) and Xieds for my 'poor mans' stage I set up on my 2012 SB. Couldn't be happer with sound, performance, etc.

I do use a stainless steel clean-out cover (from plumbing supply co.) as my A/C cover, but it is susceptable to road debris and I try to inspect it regularly.

As far as the drak. It is pretty much the standard stage 1 underneath the cover. It was and is very nice quality and well done.
