    Just bought the Voodoo exhaust for my 2009. Taking it to dealer for them to install. Want to make sure I understand the process (not mechanically inclined or knowledgeable about this stuff)
    - Dealer installs exhaust system
    - Dealer pulls stock ECU
    - I ship it to Nash
    - I have dealer pull air box and I do the modification
    - Nash ships it back and dealer installs it and airbox with K&N high flow filter
    Do I need to do anything else? Dyno-tune?
    Also, what does the air induction option on his web site mean?

    Thanks much

    No reason why you can't do the whole thing yourself. Why get killed by the dealer.
    Only tool required to get to the ECU and to remove the air box is a set of allen wrenches.
    Id be happy tt help you through it.

    Keep us updated on the progress. I am considering doing the same to my 2010.

    Will the dealer actually remove the cat?? It's a federal crime. Unless it's for race/off road use. Or are they slip ons??
    Same rules apply to a motorcycle with a factory cat as they do for cars and trucks. They were cracking down on custom tuners that were knowingly bypassing federal emissions control devices in Florida a few months back. Seems kinda stupid on motorcycles. But as sales increase, Uncle Sam becomes more interested.

    I really appreciate it, but no kidding, put a tool in my hand and things go wrong :).
    But do I have the sequence correct?
    They are two mufflers and two "y" pipes, so I really don't know if the cat will be removed.

    LOL....Yes the cat comes off and is replaced by the 2 "mid-pipes".
    You have the sequence correct. I'd have them pull the ECU while you're there if they will, this way you can ship it out that day and get it turned around quickly.

    On a side note Itgoes, I took my Vmax to the mountains for a day of riding about 2 weeks ago. I will be doing 5 days up there in June. I hope to have a picture kinda like you have once I get a chance to download them from Killboy. I can hardly wait.
    I will actually be going there in 2 weeks, but it will be on the mustang with the wife.

    Air induction or AIS is an emissions system that should be disabled if you modify the bike, otherwise you'll get a lot of backfiring in the exhaust.

    On the Gurued Gear Flash options I would choose "Closed". They will disable the functionality in the ECU code.
