Tman 555 and Thunderheader

As someone that doesn't know much about motors, I'd like some info on a bike I just bought. It is a 2011 Road Glide Ultra CVO with just 5K miles on it. The previous owner put Tman 555 cams in it. He put Thunderheader 2 into 1 exhaust and he had a Power Commander V put in. The dyno came in at 97 HP and 107 Torq.

Tell me if this is a good setup. Do the numbers seem about right? What do you guys think of the Tman 555 cams and the Thunderheader 2 into 1. How dependable are bikes with these kind of setups?

2011 Road Glide Ultra CVO, Slate/Black, Windvest 15, 110 cu in, SEPST, Thunderheader 2 into 1, TMan 555 Torqster cams, 99 hp, 115 torque

This being a CVO with 110" the number are low
That's the power it make around in 103"
Most of the time a good cam and 2:1 and tune on cvo brings her right around 105hp 114/116tq

The an cam is a great bolt in cam. The bike should run strong for you and no issues.

Enjoy

Same bike as you with just a D&D Fatcat and Sert with a dyno tune done I'm pushing 95ponies and 116 torque. At least that's what my paper says. 100lbs tq at about 2300 rpm.

A.K.A OBB

Thanks for the info. And thanks for the help you gave me over the phone recently. I appreciate you taking the time to talk to me and answer my questions.

Have more questions:

Should I stay with the Power Commander V or switch to the SE Super Tuner. I'm not looking for the best numbers, I'd rather the bike run decent, reliable, and not bad gas mileage.

Something that crosses my mind is that the PC V could fail. With the SE Super Tuner, there isn't an add on part to fail. Do many of the PC Vs fail?

Can you get as good of a tune with the SE Super Tuner compared to the PC V?

What other things can you say about the difference between SE Super Tuner and PC V?

Be aware that those 110"ers are only 9.2 cr and that cam requires more compression to be effective, and probably has much less ccp than stock.
