Ok my VERY limited knowledge here,,,

The V&H fuel pac can ONLY accept the pre-sets that V&H have set up at there web site.
So they are only close enough with V&H pipes, mufflers or Breathers.
Once you use some other brand hop up the V&H settings are not so close.
Dyno Time with a fuel pac Is money waisted.

My Buddies 2007 1200C with the SE air breather and V&H short shots runs
perfect with the Fuel pac control...
Go figure,,,

I also read that Is a good Idea to find a "good" dyno man and use the
system he Is most familiar with.

If money was no concern my choice would fall In this order:
Thundermax,
Master tune,
Power commander V

And once tuned I would disconnect/disable the auto tune on the Max or PCV....
I wouldn't want my ECM to start re-tuning and hiding a problem from me as It occured.

Yes I second osco , to make it simple if you just doing bolt ons like full exhaust and intake buy the Vance and Hines , if you wanna open the motor then do se race tuner if those are your two options. For my money on this time around after having the fuel pak I'm going se race tuner bc I know a guy at the dealership that tunes the bikes and he know what he is doing, if he said go with something else I would ( and he gets no mick asks for selling me this his pro charged 113 rg is enough for me )

2004 Sportster
2012 HD Road Glide Ultra
2006 GTO with idle problem
2011 Subaru OB (DD)

Osco what you said is true if you only go with the pairing on the internet. I have the Fuel Pack and you can call or email Vance and Hines with the exact equipment that you have and they give you a new code...that you then program all the modes into the Fuel Pack when you set it up. The beauty part, that instead of having to have it dyno tuned and pay big bucks for a pro tuner...is that for $250 for a Fuel Pack you can get the same results. Maybe it is not an exact science, but for someone more on a budget it gets great results. And if you do upgrade headers, or air breathers, you can call Vance and Hines and get a new code, program it in and you're up and running. My Road King runs flawlessly.

In a perfect world where money is no object...I too would buy the highest performance equipment that I could find and go to a pro racing shop and get it tuned to the enth degree to get the optimum horsepower and torque ratings.......but in my world....I just want the bike to sound great and go like hell when I twist the throttle!!!
