Exhaust, Intake & Fuel Management Upgrades

Hello All....I want to do a few more upgrades on my 2008 Classic 900LT. I am looking at the Vance & Hines Slash Cut exhaust (to keep the look), the Cobra PowerFlo Intake, and the new Cobra FI2000R PowerPro Tuner.
Has anyone made these modifications? Any suggestions? Thanks!

Have similar mods on my Custom SE. I have the PCV with Autotune while on my VTX1800 I have the Cobra Powrpro. Both work great so it's a matter of whether you like to play with the settings or just ride the bike. Up to you.

Has anyone ever run the Dyno after these mods?, just wondering if you actually picked up much more HP/ torque , or is it just a seat of the pants feeling?

RoadBike Magazine did a dyno run on a Vulcan Classic a couple of years ago. The bike was equipped with Cobra pipes, aftermarket intake and a Cobra Fi2000i fuel processor. They posted the dyno sheet and it showed a 25% gain over stock.

I have read either on this forum or kawasaki forum that a dyno was done with the following mods on a VN900 (pipes, intake, fuel mgmt, and secondary butterflies removed) and it showed 60.5 hp (VN900), approx 18% increase over stock. Have not found the thread yet.
