Conteplating this build/suggestions please!

As I stated in a previous post that I'm wanting to upgrade my 2012 RGU to some sort of stage II performance package. Dealer quoted around $1800.
I got a second opinion for a local bike shop. He seemed very knowledgeable and took nearly an hour to go over my options and explained how the who system works. He suggested the following...

ZIPPERS AUTO TUNE 008-13 FLHT
2009 FLH EXHAUST DRESSERS DUALS
FEULING HP+PERFORMANCE PACK
SE QUICK ADJUST P/R T/C
551 S&S EZ START CAMS (KIT)
S&S AIR CLEANER
CAM SWAP HD B/T & XL W/TIMESAVERS
OIL CHANGE

PARTS & LABOR $3409.91

Thoughts and comments please!
Thanks in advance.

My thoughts are the price seems a bit steep. Are you mechanically inclined at all? Seems like a lot of that must be labor, or maybe I'm missing something.

Seems steep to me. Wht is the cam swap? I would call fuelmoto or drago two of our sponsors who have a ton of experience to help you. I have stage II, my cost of cams, lifters, push rods, and gaskets where under 800.00. PV tuner 500.00. Exhaust was 800.00, and SE AC was around 140.00. I did not account for labor. Cams I did do myself with help. This will give you an idea not cheap no matter how ya look at it

To do this build... No I'm not. Your right, that about $3100. of this is labor. Sucks to be me I guess. I knew I should have paid attention in school.

In my opinion that is way to steep. I suggest you make the phone calls as suggested above.
I took my 96 CI to a stage 4 103 CI and payed right at $3000. I did get 20% off parts and 50% off labor so that helped. I also sent my heads out to be polished and ported and that was included in the $3000. I'm pushing 108 hp and 115 tq with my build.
Also, I don't like the S&S stuff. Seems like they have had some quality control issues in the past couple of years. Again, just my opinion.
Call some of our sponsors.

I believe that you should be able to accomplish the same results for a whole lot less.

As was stated before call Frank @ Drago's (815) 765-1790 or
Jamie @ Fuel Moto (920)423-3309 both are Sponsors of Our Forum.
I can personally speak of Frank as I've done business with him before and he is a great guy.
He will not sell you anything you don't need.
He will also steer you towards the right technician closest to you if you want to go that route.
If you give Frank a call and he doesn't answer leave him a message with your name and telephone number and let him know your a Member.
He will definitely return your call.
Best of Luck on Your decision.
