Power Commander V Maps

I want to start a new thread on offering maps for the PCV. The first on is set up for Cobra slip-ons plus a Thunder Air Kit. This forum set up won't let me attach a pvm file so I will have to email it to you. I find this map very satisfying for performance.

If you get a map done (or sent to you), you can pull the map out of the PC V and view/edit it on your computer. Then with a USB cable, send it to the PC V and run with that map. The numbers on the map table represent a percentage from original when you look at the table.

Keep in mind, the engine will still use the ECU programming for the fuel injection. The PC V is just an overlay to bump the fuel up or down as needed based on the tune. If you add the auto-tune, it will adjust automatically and you can then accept the changes and that will be edited for you onto the map.

Couldn't have said that better myself. But keep in mind that if you add a air filter kit you definitely should add a fuel modifier. I like the PCV.

Is this the same map we traded, or do you have a new one?

Are you getting a backfire periodicaly when you let off?

I have Vance & Hines slip ons with the Thunder air kit. I can't imagine that there would be all that much difference between the various mufflers, though these are a little louder than the Cobras which suggests less back pressure. At least your map should get me in the ballpark.
I would appreciate a copy of your map as well as any suggestions. My email address is co598@yahoo.com. Thanks!

I have just put a PCV on my 1700 LT
Not tunned yet, but I am adjusting the zero throttle column. This is the column that eliminates the popping.
I would like to see what you have mapped.
