S&S T124lc which tuner do you use?

I am in the middle of swapping out my 103 for a T124lc crate motor in my 2013 FLTRU. One of the last things to do is select a tuning module.
I have an SE tuner. Newer one not SERT. My mechanic wants to use a Thundermax with wide band O2 sensors and auto tune. I originally wanted to switch to a TTS. Of course there is also the PV with auto tune and wide band sensors.
My question is which one do you guys with the 124s run? Are you happy with the choice?
I want to get this right. I like the sound of ease of use the TMAT provides. I live in Denver so altitudes change rapidly and I make runs to sea level.
I have read about the TM ECM not having a knock sensor. Apparently that need is minimized by the adjustability of the TMAT. Plus the S&S is a different animal than the TC103.

Running the following:

S&S T124lc
Dragula 2:1
HPi 58mm elliptical TB throttle by wire
Matched injectors

Any insights are greatly appreciated.

Thunder Max any day of the week, 24-7-365. I wouldn't worry to much about the lack of knock sensing, that Delphi ion sensing system is so friging bad to begin with, it might as well not be there. And it is not hard to work with the timing pages on the TMax.

If I was feeling like taking on a new learning curve, then I would play with the TCFI Gen 6 Fuel Injection Controller from Daytona Twin Tech. Mostly cause I want to try the Bluetooth connection out for live data. It's Alpha-N just like the Tmax, but it's also supposed to have a newer/better tuning interface.

Thanks Thermodyne. My guy mentioned timing maps so glad to have separate confirmation.

KevsBigRed, as soon as she gets her initial 50 mile break in on the dyno I will see if I can post a video with sound. Should be pretty nice.

It's not hard at all to rework the spark pages. Here's the how to:

There was a thread on the tech forum from a guy living/riding in altitude, don't know if that was you. A lot of those guys are tuners and have tuned a lot of bikes. If you are confident in the guy you select to tune your bike, go with what he likes to use

2009 Road Glide. 16 in Vindikta Wild Cats. Aquatic AV, Stinger 700X4 to MMats PA 601, Audiopipe horns.
Ground Zero 7X10 in the lids w/ sspn.4 1000d, tuned with DD Audio DSI-2. S&S 106, lifters, push rods and AC. Drago 2. CycleRama 575. Progressive monotones -1in. 12in. HD adjustable rear shocks. Painted inner fairing. Tuned with TTS. Blacked out!

I have a very well built SE 117" Pro Race Motor, from a Dark Horse worked Crank, Head Work by Don at HDSP, aftermarket Cams, lifters, Springs, SE 58TB with 5.3 injectors, Drago's Dracula II 2-1 pipe and TTS Turner.

My Rig runs pretty damn good, So Damn Good that my best Bro who dropped a stock S&S 124LC hated the fact that I could pull away and could not catch me!!!

Well those day are well over as for now. All I can see is his Tail Lights!

His S&S 124" ended blowing out some blue smoke. Still under warranty, he had it fixed my Zack at KJC. THEN comes the other goodies. Custom CP Pistons, CNC Heads, swapped out SE 58TB for a HPI 62TB, changed 2.55" baffle fr the 3.00" baffle in his Drago's Dracula II 2-1 Pipe. Zack Tuned via PV.

Although the Dyno is in "STD" vs "SAE", 154HP & 147TQ. Its still a BEAST!!!!

OP- just saying for a little bit more $$$ you could also have a Fire Breathing Dragon!!! Either way, a S&S 124" motor is the Chit, Real Power for Real Touring out of the box!


Good Luck with your Build.
