I'm going to guess I'm not going to see any additional HP or TQ unless I dump the SEPST and run a Power Vision or other aftermarket tuner.

a friend did a stage 4 103 a few years ago-107 hp 106 tq-with the 117 I would think it would be a little higher-but i'm not a dyno guy-I agree with rgken on dyno-2 different hd shops and dynos in my area can have 10 hp and 7-15 tq difference

I know at this point the SEPST is what is holding me back. So I either forget about the ESP and go Power Vision or I live it as it is for a few years and then go PV.
I have one already I just don't want to void the ESP.

Your exhaust is also holding you back also. I know you said you're a duals guy but you're going through a lot of trouble to leave some on the table so to speak. You still have a less than appealing dip, just not quite as bad as it was.

I am not going to disagree that a 2:1 exhaust might be better but I like a 2:1:2 exhaust better. If all I was worried about were having braggin rights at the local bar I guess I would run a 2:1 with a ghost pipe.

I think from reading other builds with similar pipes that the SEPST is holding me back more than my pipes are. I could be incorrect but I'm willing to keep the dual exhaust at this point. The bike right now is a lot more rideable and once I get the engine work done this winter and switch to a PV I'll see what I get and then go from there.

Fair enough. Not trying to be offensive at all. People like what they like and if there is a certain look or sound you like then there's no changing that. I'm sure you'll end up with something you're happy with in the end. Good luck.

I didn't take your comments as being offensive one bit. I know a 2:1 exhaust is the better option for getting the MOST power out of the bike.

IMHO I prefer the sound of a dual exhaust or a single. I'm willing to give up a little to have that sound and look. If once I do the engine work and change to the PV it's still not performing like it should I'll swap to a FullSac DX pipe and then if the Khrome Werks are the issues I'll swap to their CVO replacement cores.

I've said it before and I know it can cause me grief but it's me. I'm hardheaded sometimes and have to try things my own way even when it costs me more money.
