Anybody here using the Vance & Hines Fuel Pak? I have an 05 Dyna with the SE AC, a Pro Pipe and the dealer installed stage 1 download. I don't have a laptop, which it looks like I'd need for a PCIII. The Fuel Pak doesn't look like it has the flexibility of the PCIII, but it looks like it might do the trick and appears to have been designed primarily around V&H exhausts on bikes with a high flow AC (i.e, the same setup I have). Since installing my ProPipe, the bike just feels like it's a bit starved for fuel so I think I need to do something to get the most out of it!

You should do a search. Every reference to it I have ever seen on this site has been negative. I don't want to make your decision for you, but it's rare to see such universal agreement about anything on this forum.

In fairness not everyone hates it, but most of us have found out that it tends to run rich and if you ever plan to do a 95" upgrade, cams or head porting it is useless. V&H uses a proprietary system for adjusting it that they refuse to share with tuners. The hot ticket is to get a PCIII, SERT or the new Terry Components Terminal Velocity II. The first two choices should be mapped on a dyno. It'll cost you about $250 to do this but the bike will run well. The TC TVII is a self tuning system that uses an O2 sensor to adjust the mixture on the fly and will re-adjust after making engine changes to the bike. Your already set for this since you have the stage 1 download. Do a search here and in the engines section. The guys who have installed it are raving about it.

You don't have to have a laptop for the PCIII. It comes with a power adaptor (9V battery hook up) so you can load your maps from your PC without being hooked up to the bike. :cool:

Aaahhhh...cool! Thanks for the info. I don't know how I missed that in the past, but I always thought you had to have the thing simultaneously hooked up to your computer and your bike. For $40 more than the Fuel Pak, I think I'll go the PCIII route! Thanks all for the feedback.
