Default Help. Installing rpw and cams

I searched the forum for a week now. Giving up and just asking. I have a 03 Vegas with s&s intake and map with stage 1 slipons. I'm taking the slipons off and ordered rpw slash. (super excited
First question. Do I need to remap my bike? Or should I get a pwc 3?
Next question. Possibly wanting to put cams on my bike. Do I need a pwr 3? And which cams to get? Andrews? Help. If I need a pwr for the cams I'm thinking ofmjust getting 1 and setting it up for the new pipes? Just looking for advice. The dealer in my area is pretty unhelpful. They just don't have a answer.
Thanks for any input

2003 VEGAS (love it!)
so far... BUT the never ending list..
RPW slash
S&S intake w/flash
MBW led turn signal for the rear
Ness led bullets on the front
Lowered 1.5inches (chrome links on ebay$40)
ness mirrors and grips
18 blue led pod kit/with key fob.(installed my self!!) looks awesome!!

1st question: no you won't need to remap - the S&S map should handle the new pipes fine. A small tweak with the dealer computer may be required, but I doubt it.
2nd: I would not recommend cams in that year bike without any motor work. All the aftermarket cams avalable are going to KILL your low-end power. Unless you do all your riding over 4000 rpm's then you'll be doing yourself a disservice IMHO with just cams.
Now cams and a pistons on the other hand..........

Agreed. The 92" does not have enough compression or inches for any of the available cams to work

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Dies that go the same for the 100" engine?

Nope. Displacement makes up for the lower compression

Default Thanks for the info

Well put on the rpw slash on! And do they sound awesome!!! And my throttle response is way better. Pulled the plugs and looks like it's running just right. And no pop or hesitation at all! Better than the staged1 slipons. I have s&s intake with s&s flash for stage 1. Seems to be working good with these slash. Again thx for the info. Little bummed about no cams
