Default Need a tune file

I ordered torque tubes and a PC3, and i don't see the appropriate tune file on the power commander website.

Setup:
-2007 hammer with stock internals (as far as i know)
-Torque tubes
-Ness pipes with no baffles
-PC3
-sea level

2007 Hammer, lowered, Bassani 2:1(updated), torque tubes, Dobeck AFR+.
2000 Firebird Formula, 6.0L, LS3 heads, etc, etc, etc, - SOLD
HM3(FMF) - 3/7 Lima Co. 2010 Helmand, Afghanistan

Because of the huge variance in TPS settings on the 99-07 bikes a generic map is a HUGE shot in the dark to get it right. The only real way you're going to get it tuned even close is with a dyno. Actually your bike is going to run pretty good if you can get a dealer to install the 2005 Hammer Stage1 map to it. Especially if your only mods are the intake and exhaust.
You'll also make more usable power if you put the baffles back in.

The previous owner mentioned something about it already having the stage 1 flash done by a dealer, but it still had the stock intake and filter when i bought it.

I'll see how it runs until i get get some dyno time.

It also runs better, even down low, with the baffles removed.... which seems weird.

The important part about the download is the 2005 aspect. The 2005 maps ran way better than the 06-07 maps due to less emissions restrictions. Also if you can score a 2005 STG1 map is has a BUNCH of fuel build into it and a lot of times a person can get away without a fuel controller.

even with torque tubes? i'd be happy as hell if i could save the cost of a power commander.

although my better judgement is telling me to take advantage of dyno access and the capability to tune individual cylinders with the power commander.

Nothing is going to run better than a PROPERLY tuned Power Commander. The again for your particular combination the STG1 map will work fine if the dealer is willing to install an 05 map on a 2007 and adjust it properly. The 05 map will run better than a generic map for your PC.
So you have two options 1) dyno the PC or 2) sell the PC once you find a dealer that will install an 05 map and set the TPS properly.

at what AFR do these usually make the most power? i'm used to N/A LSX cars liking about 12.8:1.

Also, someone said the ECM has to be returned to stock before i can use the PC3, which makes no sense to me.
