Default Intake/Exhaust Mod Sanity Check

Greetings Victory Peeps-

I just wanted to do a "sanity check" on some mods I was planning on doing to my 2013 Hammer 8 Ball in the near future.

Octanes pipes from Conquest Customs
Lloyds Torque Tubes
Lloyds VFC-3
and lastly a Lloyds Adjustable Timing System

My questions are: Am I missing anything? Does the VFC-3 come preprogrammed? If not, can I use my Innovate LM-2 to tune? Any suggestions on setting the ATS? I've read both +4 and +6 are a good starting point?

Thanks for any input!
See you at Daytona!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Only thing I would do different is a PCV instead of the VC3 ... In the Grand Scheme of things it is a much better choice for programmability , and expansion , IE: Autotune and such ...

Or wait for VFCIV, which is supposed to be better than PCV!

With the TTI you pretty much need a Power Commander to tune it. You will need individual cylinder tuning (trim) and the ability to remove fuel, not just add it. This is especially true with pipes that are not equal length like Octanes.

So, forgive me, as I'm operating on a bit of a learning curve here. Most of my expertise comes from high performance jetskis... On my ski, I've got (basically what I believe is in this medium, called a power commander). I plug it into my laptop, and load a custom map based on what mods/ a/f ratio I'm running. Different temps/humidity/conditions factor into what map might be run on a particular day. Is the PCV a set-it and forget-it type system? How is the map initially loaded to the PCV? Do I need to run an a/f meter to ensure I'm not lean/rich?
