Thundermax on a stock 2010 RGC

Pardon me if this has already been discussed, but I've searched the various threads concerning the Thundermax, and couldn't find what I'm looking for. I'm hearing talk locally (Nashville, TN) that after installing a Thundermax on a totally stock 2010 RGC 96 engine you can expect a cooler, smoother running engine, with a lower rpm at idle, and little more zip when accelerating. Any comments / testimonials, pro or con, will be appreciated.

probably pretty accurate. I have heard via the internet (so it has to be true cause no misinformation could possible on the internet) that the cats can get damaged from being too rich. I would like to know for sure tho.

Thanks for your response roadgliderick. From what I've learned, the Thundermax is a very good product, but for the Thundermax to really make a difference, I will have to do what you've done....add to the package with new headers, muffs, AC and oil cooler. Guess my quest to get a better, cooler running bike by just adding the Thundermax to it in stock configuration just won't make a big diffrence.

for half of that price you can get the TTS MasterTune and accomplish the same thing.... you just won't have the "autotune" feature...

I had the Thundermax on my '06 Deuce AND my '07 CVO Springer... I took it off the springer and installed the TTS MasterTune and saw an immediate improvement!
my opinion would be to save your money......

if you used the TTS, you would know that there is no need to dyno.....
What tuners have you "been through" ?
I've been through the SERT, ThunderMax w/autotune, and the TTS.
based on my experience, the TTS has been the best one so far.

I don't think the ThunderMax is worth $800.00, not when you can get the same if not better results from the TTS Masterune.

as long as you're happy with it, that's all that matters.
I haven't dyno'd my bike, no need with the TTS tuner.
