heck yeah, I just sent my ecu out to get a tune put on it so it'll be a about a week before I get it back. The previous owner did not tune for the exhaust he put on it. no big deal especially for the price I paid for it.
Technically, you don't have to tune for just an exhaust. Doesn't hurt to do so either. We've always said here, intake alone, no tune needed. Exhaust alone, no tune needed. Do both, you need to tune it. I have an intake and exhaust on mine and have an under the seat tuning device.
I hear ya, the main reason I had it tuned was for the fueling in the first 3 gears is pure ca-ca from the factory, putting a exhaust on it with no cat conv didn't help the lean conditions in any way. I don't intend to do any other engine performance mods to it, so it'll be good from here on out. I probably could have gotten away with a TRE mod, but I prefer a ECU tune for the added benefits that can be done with a tune.
I was out at Pops on Route 66 in Arcadia yesterday. A lot of bikes hang out there Saturday and Sunday. It's a nice ride. I'll be headed out there again next Sunday. I'll send you a pm with my phone number, in case you get that PCM back by then.
