Default Tri-Oval ok w/ Cams,Timing wheel,PCV,Lloydz Filter or no?

Application is a 2013 Hard-Ball stock ECU.

At the end of may I have an appointment for:
Lloydz VM1-DR cams
Lloydz air filter
Lloydz timing wheel,
PCV and dyno tune

Currently I have the Tri-Oval mufflers on, which came with the bike deal uninstalled, no flash, O2's pulled, just to have them on prior to the appointment.

I'm rethinking the Tri-Oval's verses another muffler route with stock headers.

They sound ok, though a bit EPA-anemic, but decent. Granted sound is subjective. I like a low-frequency deep tone. I was rather pleased with the RPW Slash I had on the High-Ball, though I was annoyed after a couple hours in the saddle as they're loud as hell. Didn't necessarily want to go that crazy on this bagger, though bagger exhaust is behind you so in the saddle you don't get quite as blasted.

My main question is how will the Tri-Oval exhaust perform, especially given the performance mods I'm about to do?

VERY open to other recommendations. Modded stock or exchange stock.. Etc. Witchdoctors, Nascar6, etc etc etc.. I'm wide open-minded on the subject.

I still have the stock mufflers.
Input from any/all in the know who've dyno'd or done similar cams etc highly welcome and appreciated.

Other recommendations?

Tri-Ovals are not bad performers. If you like the look and sound, hell, you already have them...

Thanks. Yep. Good point. I have them and have them already on. I just feared they'd fair closer to mediocre as Vic's steel-frame stage 1's tend to be assessed.

Granted the tour bike headers are a whole other ball game entirely. I've read the XC/XR headers aren't too shabby though by folks like KevinX. Not so thrilled about the cats just as a general opinion, but if the 'system' with the cats flows well, so be it.

Yeah on looks they're fairly sexy.
On sound I'd say they're adequate on a stock bike so hopefully a little bit meaner after air flow is opened up.

Nice stock cam numbers. I imagine I'm sure I'll be pleased when she comes off the dyno.

I did, in a manner.. Shot him a reply to an email we have going stating "your thoughts on it, at your leisure".. As I'm sure he's a busy guy. In meantime I wanted to get some discussion going from you guys also.. As there isn't much out there discussing Vic's Tri-Oval pipes' actual performance.

I have your setup minus the cams. Waiting for Lloydz to restock them. I like the Tri-oval for touring duties. Interested to see what you can get from this setup with the cams installed.
