You don't find much on 96' F.I. models when it comes to upgrading the fuel and, exhaust so maybe this will help someone out down the road. I've installed a WISECO (pn# FMC-051) fuel controller, Wild Pigs slash down mufflers with the 2 1/4" baffles (recommended by them for my set up considering a future mild cam swap), V&H true duals and, a K&N air filter. With the Wiseco fuel controller tuning it was simple. Same principle as tuning a carb only it's just pressing buttons rather than changing jets. Read the plugs and, feel it out.... no problems. The whole set up was pretty inexpensive and well worth the time and $$$. Haven't had it dynoed but, by the feel it prob gained a little. It climbs the rpms a little faster I believe and, cruises just fine. The sound of the Wild Pigs mufflers is better to me than most more expensive ones. It's a good hearty sound and, with the 2 1/4" baffles it's probably more volume than most on a UC would want but, for me and being in Florida where drivers are deaf it's a beautiful sound that gets many compliments. Is it true that there are limitations to the early F.I.? Yes. If all you want is some mild performance upgrades and, to smooth out the pull then it can be done fairly cheap. Hope this will help someone else out when searching like I did for options on early F.I. models.
