    Default PCV or Flash the ECU

    Which is the better smarter option. I purchased the PCV because I was informed that I needed one after installing my Freedom Exhaust. I recently dropped off a buddies bike to a performance shop and the owner who tunes bikes said that I needed to sell my PCV because it only controls the lower injectors and I could get more out of the bike if I went through the ECM and the PCV was a good back-up. Any help would be great..

    There is a lot more that can be done with an ECU flash. The tuner has full access to to fuel maps, OEM restrictions, etc. the PCV it primarily a fuel map tuner. Most still run other inline gadgets to get around all the restrictions like an xtre and an ese. You get everything done with the ECU flash and save time and money not having to have the other devices.

    ECU flash. Takes care of all restrictions from stock. With Power Commander to get optimum performance you'd have to pay for dyno tune or install O2 sensors and pay for auto tune and do your own mapping

    ECU tune is the way to go, for sure. That being said, I had a PCV that was installed at no charge to me a few years ago. When I had my ECU flashed by BCS, I simply loaded a zero map and left it installed. The reason? I installed a Dynojet quick shifter, which is controlled and setup by the PCV.
