I recently put a Fi2000r on my 09 Custom along with the secondary butterfly removal...having a hard time making the next decision

Intake or Pipes?

Intake:
BAK

Pipes
Road Burner or Hard Krome

I can only do one...gotta keep the Mrs. happy...

Any suggestions?

Either way you need both to gain much from either. Air in needs air out and vice versa, but I'd go for the pipes. I did a stage 3 debaffle on my stockers and love it. The stock pipes are so corked up. I haven't had the $ for an intake either, I pulled the butterflies and put in a K&N filter. The K&N is definitely better than the stock paper filter.

I have the stage three debaffle too...will aftermarket pipes really open it up vs. Full stock debaffle?

Ive never ridden one w aftermarket pipes. My debaffle is a custom job. I cut the pipes open and removed EVERYTHING accept the catalytics ( left em for backpressure) I wasn't aware you were debaffled, hearing that I guess I would do an intake. Im sure that would gain you more power with an intake than aftermarket pipes.
