Tax time came in and i was temporarily a thousandaire. Decided to make my 2014 Deluxe actually sound like a Harley lol. I installed a set of Vance and Hines big radius 2 into 2 pipes. Arlen Ness big sucker stage 2 breather and a Vance and Hines FP3 tuner. Used the map designed for this setup. When the weather gets better i will run the auto tune feature. So far, bike sounds amazing. Temps were 21°, so didnt ride it long. Rode 8-10 miles. The power increase is definitely noticeable. Cleaned up the looks of the bike too. Im a happy camper. Just need to get this february snow storm out of the way....
Before and after pics attached.

Thanks. I have no regrets. I did however take a sharp right turn on the first ride and scraped the tip of the lower pipe. At least its broke in now lol.

Hey Drifter
Looks great ! I have heard that those pipes are very loud..........true or not? I'd like to put them on my Rocker but in black rather than chrome.

Those pipes really add to the look of the bike. My friend has them on his Sportster and they sound great too. Spring can't get here soon enough. Enjoy!

I found with my FP3 to just trust the V&H techs with their first (made for my setup) tune.

I ran several AutoTune runs just to check it out, and each one only made minor, barely noticeable changes.
I ended up just going back to that first map and calling it good.
That first map btw, was sensational.
After all, those maps are pulled from bikes with my equipment, on a dyno.

Ill probably wind up doing the same thing, just leave the map thats on. I only rode for a few miles, but it sounded and felt great. I may play with the auto tune a little. Just to see what its like. I like the feature of being able to monitor all the engines systems on my phone. Pretty cool.
