I need help choosing...

First off, I'm using my iphone right now and got frustrated trying to search.

I'm about to pull the trigger on some upgrades and am stumped on what to use for fuel management.

I have a fuel moto billet intake. I plan on getting the new drago 2:1:2 headers when they come out next month. I'm also leaning toward either the drago mufflers or the CFRs. I would like to add a cam sometime down the road.

I've looked at the PCV, TTS, and fuel moto micro EFI (because it's cheap, which is a plus for me).

I don't think I want the PV because I want it to be out of sight, and the Thundermax is too expensive for me.

I'm hoping to get some thoughts/suggestions on this build and reasons why.

Don't waste your time with the FuelMoto Micro. Really basic and personally I'm not a fan of harness boxes. Just another thing to go bad and leave you stranded.

I went with a TTS tuner. There is no other tuner on the market that can do as much as the TTS. In fact, I have purchased 6 TTS tuners now and have been very happy.

I have the micro tuner and love it for its simplicity. However, if you are going to add cams later you need a more advanced model.

PV for me. Your comment about it being out of sight has me confused as you can simply flash your ECM and take it off the bike completely. If your looking for a great tuner that's easy to use its gonna be hard to beat.

I'm for the TMax, it may not be cheap, but it's user friendly and it's not a piggy back unit.

Once you get familiar with the TMax, the tuning capabilities are numerous.

If you want performance, spend the money on the Thunder Max tuner. If you want sound and to save money, go cheaper. You get what you pay for. If you are going to do a "build" then buy the right tuner once. If you are going to run Drago exhaust, that means you will also do a new breather and probably want to add cams. TMax covers it all. And Frank Drago has all of the maps needed for any setup.

Quattro / 16 RGS / Dragula2 2:1 / Drago 565 / ThunderMax Tuner / Fuel Moto Breather / Klock Werks Flare / Custom Dynamics LEDs

Orange Crush / 13 RGC / Dragula 2:1 / TMan 555TQ / ThunderMax Tuner / Zipper's Max-flow Breather / Klock Werks Flare / Custom Dynamics LEDs

Hitman,

Frank usually has some very attractive pricing on various packages. You might want to give him a call.

Well i didn't know that. I guess I have to add that one to the list.


So from what I understand the Thundermax replaces the factory ECM and the other options plug into the factory ECM and flash it or create a loop? Is there a benefit of one over the other?

The power visions does not piggy back the ecm. It flashes the ecm. You flash it through the data port. I have the Power Visions. I like it. Simple to load maps. If I had to do it again, I would probably go with the T-Max, though no issues with the PV1
