Replace 255's in 2013 RGU

I bought a 2013 Road Glide Ultra and let the dealer do my upgrades. (enough said?)
They installed a fatcat 2-1, S/E-A/C, S/E tuner, and 255 cams. Dyno tuned and I
don't really like it. I was told that it needs a good tune.
If I am going to do that then I think a better cam would be needed also.
Mr. Wood said a 222 would work great for 2 up.
I would like to know which cam would give me the best performance? 50* 2-up
The 255's do fine then fall off quick.
Any and all advice needed.
Thank you

I like my Andrews 57H setup.

The other one is my SE255 stage two done by the dealer.

Both bikes dyno tuned in the winter time by Ed Dahir.

If the dealer did a dyno tune you shoudn't need a good tune. Sound to me that the dealer did a basic remap and charged you for a dyno tune. My bike with the 255 cam and the same mods except I had a true dual exhaust produced 107 lbs of torque and it would be hard to find a aftermarket cam that would produce equal to or more torque then that with typical mods. A good dyno tune depends on the experience/knowlege of the person doing the tune. At $500 a dyno tune the HD dealer wants to get your bike in and out of the dyno as fast as they can so they can get the next bike in.

Thank you all.
Ironmark that sounds like what they did. I was told that I needed
a good tune by a good tech.

Be careful geting a dyno tune from a independent shop too. Some Indys don't work well with some tuners. Some indys can't tune a SERT and most HD dealers don't tune anything but a SERT, sometimes it is because of the software/hardware or lack of knowlege of the tuner you are using.
