I read for two months and decided to go with the Andrews 54H. I don't have the bike running yet so I can't say much else. The 48H is pretty new and there isn't much information on it.

A big factor is going to be is your engine a 96" or a 103"? I've researched this as well, and there's also a good thread on hear from FLTRI, and his 48 install. You should be able to find it with a search.

The 48 was designed as a bolt in cam for a 96" motor. You can put one in a 103, but you'll need to keep the CR down in the low-mid 9's. Whereas the 54 is for 96"-103" with a CR around 10:1. So it all depends. If you already have a 103, then the 54 is probably more practical, as a 48 would likely require pulling off the top end to correct the CR with new pistons, head work etc.......$$$$$

I'm going with a 48H in my 96" bike, but won't have any idea how it runs until Apr-May. Good luck...you could drive yourself batty deciding on a cam!

I have the 54H's in my 2011 FLTRU but unfortunately I haven't rode it because of the snow and otherwise terrible winter weather. I can say that my dealer has done a lot of bikes with the 54's in them with very good results. They haven't done any 48H's because I asked. The Master Tech that does the Performance Mod's said my bike ran real well with them. I don't have Dyno numbers because of the Pro Tuner with Smart Tune and I don't feel like beating the bike up on a dyno. I also believe the Tech has them in his bike. I have two other HD's with Andrews and have been very happy.

Fullsac.com has dyno results on their site with the 96's and a 103 Ultra Limited.

Doc is putting TW-555's in my FLTRU (103) later this month. I am also going with the Jackpot 2-1-2 exhaust with Rush slipons. I will be posing dyno numbers in a couple of weeks.

Talking 48h

Well after hours and hours of searching and looking through tons of peoples dyno numbers, i made an adult decision and went with the 48h cam. I am a horsepower nut with my car and truck. My duramax is all tuned and a rocket and my chevelle is twin supercharged. However i do most of my bike riding on back roads and with my very understanding wife. The 48h should be an awesome torque cam for the low rpms i ride. I am hoping for 85hp and 95ftlbs which is a tad better than most se255 numbers. I however wont find out what it feels like until the GD snow goes away. Just woke up to another 6 inches of snow. The cam installer said she pulls pretty good on his very cold test drive though I am dying to ride!!!!!!!! Should get it to the dyno soon and will post the sheet and some numbers for everyone.

I think this is how the bike should come from the factory. Even two up on the freeway I can pass using 6th gear and not have to downshift.

Took the bike for a ride Saturday. MAN what a difference. so much low end power. Best bang for the buck so far. I have a baseline map in right now so will be even better once dyno tuned. Exhaust sounds way more bad ass then before too. My buddy knew I had done something before I got a chance to tell him.
