air cleaner upgrade

Hi everyone,im a new member to the great Harley fraternity.I just wanted to know of peoples experience upgrading the air cleaner assembly to something similar to v&h naked kit ?
I have read a lot about having to use a efi tuner to go with it,can anyone tell me how much or little the performance will increase? Fyi...i have a screamin eagle nightstick exhaust,I also have the sceamin eagle performance aircleaner kit,gotta say it wasn't worth the money...thas why I'm thinking it needs to go...thanks in advance peepz

Let me stop you there... its not worth the money. Considering that the price of the exhaust, intake and tune is about 20% of the cost of the whole bike... the increase in performance is relatively negligible.

Ok thanks heaps for the quick response.I think I would have been better off with a 750 but they don't sell them in Australia.

Yeah, he's completely wrong. You can get an FP3 tuner for like $270 on eBay, the intake is about the same. You've already got the exhaust. The 750's go from 50hp stock to 70hp with those 3 components. The 500 should go from 33 to about 45 with them. I'm actually getting mine dyno'd October 8th because nobody seems to have done that after these upgrades on the 500 yet. It certainly FEELS like the power went up that much.

The V&H FP3 "Locks" to the original VIN. If you buy one on Ebay, Make sure it wasn't used before. All the places I looked Online (USA) do not refund them once used. They inform you to contact V&H directly.

Tusconmax1 makes a great point, you have to be absolutely certain that you're getting a NEW unit, one that hasn't been locked to any particular bike's VIN. Once it's been locked, it's pretty much useless for anyone else in the world.

So buyer beware. There are obviously some sketchy sellers out there, whether ebay or craigslist or whatever. That said, it's most certainly possible: I got one off ebay, and it was brand new and unlocked. The seller was HogProWheels, and the price at the time (six months ago) was $297-ish, free shipping. I just checked and the same seller has got 'em for $268, with free shipping, and still claiming that they're new.

Yeah, I've heard of lots of people getting them at that seriously discounted price on eBay with no problems. I got mine on Amazon, and knowing Amazon, I'd have had no problem returning it if I were that sketchy..

This forum is awesome.thanks for all the great responses.i would be interested in the results after the dyno tune! Is the fp3 easy to use or do you need some advanced knowledge?
also would hd dealers be able to work with it?
they don't seem to like non genuine parts😊

Oi oi oi

It's super easy to use. The HD dealer will not honor your warranty if they deem that damage was caused by the FP3. The good news is that your original map is saved when you connect the first time so you can flash the original map back to the bike, remove the FP3 and no one would know but you
