Default Bassani Pro Street Turn Out

Just ordered a set of Bassani Pro Street Turn Outs for my 2012 Vegas 8 Ball. Wondering if I need a fuel controller like the PCV or VFC3 with just this mod? Saving up for a Torque Tube intake & filter so am not sure if I shud get both the fuel controller & TT together or buy the FC then the TT.

Another issue I have is that I do not have access to a tuner without having to ship my bike overseas. So I need to make my upgrade choices carefully so as not to destroy my engine

Any help is much appreciated

Yes you will need a fuel controller. If you plan an doing multiple upgrades without access to a dyno then I would suggest a PCV and auto-tune. You will need a base map to start with. If you purchase from fuel moto they'll send you one or you may get lucky and find someone here that has a similar setup and might send you their map.

OMG! So even if my pipes arrive I will not be able to install them without hurting my engine? The bike is factory stock.

If all you are doing is pipes and nothing else currently, you can get by without a tuner...Most people just unplug the O2 sensors to richen it up a bit. Once you start doing intakes, then I would get a tuner.

I agree with huberj , put pipes on , disconnect 02's ... Take your time removing original exhaust , its a bitch .

Will that not throw an "engine check" light on?

Don't over tighten the exhaust flange bolts on those Bassani's , they bend easily . 12' pounds max !

Did your pipes install easily? Did you have to drill or weld anything?

They will bolt right up, the hardest part is removing the stubborn stock exhaust.
