Oh, you're killing me here! I would LOVE to get to take my bike by Ray's place and have him finish tuning it out! And yes, I would like the results, and even the mapping as well (if that's allowed), as that is exactly the same setup I will have once I get the Tri-Ovals. I know engines are not the same and it wouldn't be a perfect match, but closer than guessing until I find a good tune shop.
I now know that Chuckster's Air Intake System dramatically increased intake noise. Now that you have that with the Tri-Ovals, give it your best shot at describing the sound for me please! I'm just not gonna be happy 'till I get those slip-ons!
The max. horsepower and torque for my bike with the Tri-Ovals and K&N filter was 75.26 hp and 92.25 lbs. After installing the Thunder gasket, the air kit and the PCV (set to zero), the max. h.p. increased to 78.93, but the torque actually dropped to 90.37. Finally, after the tune and mapping, the max. h.p. was increased to 83.86 and the torque topped out at 100.43 lbs!
After the mods were complete, my bike had roughly a 13% to 14% gain in max. h.p. over stock and about a 10% to 11% gain over just the Tri-Ovals; and the max. torque increased roughly 10% to 11% over stock and about 8% to 9% over the Tri-Ovals alone.
To be honest, I haven't noticed a significant increase in intake noise, but I opted to keep the stock covers; mostly for that very reason. After reading a BUNCH of posts on the Tri-Ovals versus the V&H slip-ons, I decided on the Tri-Ovals knowing that I would be giving up some performance increases, but being reasonably sure that they would be a bit quieter. After installing the Tri-Ovals, I think the V&H have a deeper growl to them, but I really like the Tri-Ovals too. When you run up through the gears or 'get on it' you'll definitely hear them bark . . . I think they sound pretty damn good and they don't deafen the wife; which was also an important consideration!!!
I'm a bit embarassed to admit that I don't have a clue what my PCV map looks like. I guess I was so excited to get the bike back that I didn't even think to ask Ray about it. I'll send him a PM or give him a call and I'll let you know what I find out!! Hope this helps.
