Yup got power pros over a year ago. Great sound very low tone. Lots of power gain possible if you get the right fuel module and any free flow air filter.

My understanding is you need the pipe upgrade, an air kit, a fuel processor, and it all needs to be dyno-tested to really get an improvement.

Yes, I have the Cobra HP2-1. I got it on Amazon for $350 delivered. Shop around.

Sound-It is loud as hell! I had to install a HardKore quiet baffle to keep from getting head aches.
(Still loud, great tone).

I simultaneously installed a BAK ($225 delivered), and the Dobek electronic jetkit ($150.00 delivered). No Dyno needed ($200 plus not spent) Suggested factory settings work great. The bike is often refered to by others as "a beast" I just think it runs quite nicely.

I did it last year and I am very happy with the look and the sound... I have the stock intake and did not have to marble, I do not have any popping.

It took me about 1 hour taking my time. The hardest was getting the covers on the cobra pipes on. Make sure you look at the diagrams to get the hardware on right. Don't forget to buy new gaskets, some people will say you don't need them but they are inexpensive and since you have the pipes off anyway it does not hurt to change them.

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.
