You kind of have it backwards. You can run any intake, any pipe, or any combination. The question is whether you need fuel management. In your case, you have pipes and fuel....just pick an intake that you like. The fact of the matter is that most of them are not going to show a huge gain/loss in power over others.

:agree: for once with him. :D:joke:

I would go with Ducks air covers for more of a custom look, and you will save some $$ also.

If I new about ducks befor I bought mine, I would have done them In a heartbeat.
:agree: Get a pair of Ducks517 Air Intakes custom made. If you have a design you would like to have as part of your intake covers, I am sure he can do it. The guy is absolutely amazing. I am getting him to do another set for my second M109R, because I liked the first ones so much.

Hi Toro,
I got the 109 in June here in Perth.
I did all mods myself, and got most parts direct from http://www.cruisercustomizing.com and a few other places.
I have found CC to be very reliable and super fast.
The instructions that come with all the various parts are pretty easy to follow and if it saves you "grands" then definitely do it yourself! :bigthumbsup:
Go for it whilst our dollar is kicking some A$$!
Cheers

It is true what Harris said. Really not going to see any real difference in HP with any of them. I would go with what you like for sure. A set of covers from me or any other manufacturer would work great. The fuel programmer is the key to gaining all the HP you want out of the mods.

From one option to another there is not a big difference.
