Default T-Man Cams

Has anyone used the T-Man 555 or 555 Torqster cams? I have a stock 2008 96" that I would like to add cams to. I'm going to leave the motor stock except for Rinehart slipons, a breather kit, and a tuner.

I've got the TM555 torqster in my 2010 FLTRX with a 96. It does give more seat of the pants torque and HP, but I've never had it on the dyno to see what it actual did. I like the extra feeling of power. Come to Kernersville and talk to him, that's what I did, his shop is over behind Lowes Foods just off of North Main.

Thanks Big Guy. I spoke to him on the phone and he recommended the torqstet. I wanted to go with the Andrews 48H, but T-Man will only dyno a bike that uses his parts.

How do you think the 555 Torqster compares to the T-Man 555's Jeff?

I think on a stock bagger the torqster is the only way I would go especially on a 96" but mine is a 103" and still the torqster is what I most likely will go with. there is a dyno section on htt (harley tech talk) that has a few of them.

We sell and install many Tman 555
The 555tq is a nice pulling cam I call it truck cam for pulling. It pulls real nice up to 3800 rpm tq right there. It likes stock 9.3 or 10.1 max for compression.
The 555 Std is a nice over all cam pulls real nice all the way up and you can run 9.5 to 10.8 comp and it loves up.
My self and Red Rock HD have seen this cam make on 103" and 107" 116 hp and 120/128 tq.
But the TQ one does make more down low power faster than the std 555 but the std makes more mid and top end and carrys the tq curve longer across the rpm range.
Either one you pick you will enjoy....
One of are dealers thats (Tom at Deklab Equipment in Sycamore ILL).Sells are products bought a 525 tman and Dragula 2:1 with pvc and tuned at Workmans HD on a 09 96 inch motor made 93hp 103 tq. Not bad for a little cam..
And the 525 and 555 std are the same but the lift is a little more on the 555.
Any questions TR or myself would be more than happy to help.
Thanks
FD.

FD,
Based on your response, It sounds like the 555 will be a better cam for me. I'm also going to change my final drive ratio via a 30T Andrews trans pulley. We have a cross country tripped planned to Montana this year that will include extended periods of 80 mph riding, as well as slow curvy mountain riding. Thanks a lot for your help.
