PCV install on Vaquero

I finished the install of the PCV with Autotune yesterday. I chose the Autotune with (2) O2 sensors because I intend to separate the exhaust pipes this winter. I loaded up one of Davidís maps and am going to spend the afternoon on the Dyno tweaking to see what the motor will produce. The instructions that came with my unit left a lot out about the hook up to the coils so I thought I would show some pictures. Thanks to all the people that contributed ideaís to the install.

Thought I would add a few more pic"s. Before you ask, Ues I wrapped the pipes before I installed them for the last time. All I will say about reinstalling the chrome covers with the wrap on is Time consuming, One funny note I am about half way finished with the install and the wife walks in the shop. She looks at me and the brand new bike that I have taken apart shaks her head and walks out not a word spoken

I didn't think the PCV with the autotune would hook up to the coils at all. Does the PCV have the ability to change the ignition advance? I have the PCV with ignition and of course that would connect to the coils.Hmmm interesting.

Thanks David, I will be using one of your maps today to start the testing with. Both your maps have ignition maps with them so you must have the coils hooked up. I had to call the mamufacture to find out where the white and green and the white and blue wires hook up as that part is not in the instructions.

Is your PCV #17-006 or the 17-033?

OH ok. Then you should try those ignition maps that I sent with the fuel map. Mine has never run this good. Yes those instructions lack in the detail hook up. If you will look closely in the illustrated picture of the instructions they use a jumper wire from the left coil to the white wire. Very confusing but I figured it out. They need to update that.

Well found out that if you run dual O2 sensors that the maps from a single or no sensor will not load so with the auto tune turned off and Davids #1 map loaded with the stock air filter set up we ended up with 77.11 hp and 91.41 ft/lbs of torque. More to come.

Cstmcycle... When I got my PCV they had the map for the 033 loaded and I am running the 006. They had me to open the wrong map and copy the values and then open the right model map and paste the new values in it and save new map. Worked fine when we did that. It did not recognize the map model was the problem so I was thinking that you may can do the same thing.

Daddy mac, are you running (2) O2 sensors. Mine has 1 in each pipe now. If I turn the auto tune off I can run any of the maps from them or better yet David Sheek has a map that runs extremely well but if I turn on the auto tune on then it separates the tuning of each cylinder. The fuel and ignition can be adjusted separately for each cylinder. What I am doing is taking Davids #1 map and putting the same map in both cylinders then ride for a while and let the auto tune make changes then see what changes it made and if each cylinder stayed the same. Seems like a good starting point. I put Davids map in a friends 2011 Vaquero with a PCV and single auto tune, V&H slip-ons and a Roaring twins air filter set up and it made 81 hp and 91 ft/lbs of torque. This map sure smoothed out the low rpm power also. A very good map. In case you read this Thanks David.
