I finally got my bike on the Dyno today. 102.5 Horse, and 104.5 ft-lbs of Torque. 2000 Road King (1550) with Screaming Eagle Performance Heads, SE 257 cams, HI4TC ignition, White Brother E Series 2 into 1 exhaust, and the stock carb rebuild by Woods. Better than 100 horse, and still gets better than 40 mpg running down the interstate at 80 +.

Nice usable torque curve, I bet that puppy pulls. What was your out of pocket costs, I'm sure we would all like to know. Did you do any of the work yourself?

The project ran around $3,500. Didn't do any major work myself, don't have the talent. Did some minor stuff early on, but I don't break in too far. The only way I can justify any of it, is I got a good deal on the bike to start with. Bought a year old police bike, had the work done, and still have less in it than most with a new Road King.

Looks good, goes to show you one more time that you can make very good torque in the midrange without the little trainer cams.

The little itty bitty ones for shy riders, like the 203's, 204's, TW26's, etc. :D :D

HIPPO is on the money again. I read a bunch of bull about Cams and problems, and wanted to go with the TW26. They guy helping me pick out parts convinced me that I needed more to get results from the heads.

The exhaust helped round everything out too. Like I see in other posts, it's hard to get a straight answer sometimes. When asking about cams, you either get, "man that's way to much cam, or you can never have too much cam."
