I might still have to send too bob for the flash and then take it to the dyno to do fine tuning but right now I will playing it by ear

Even with Bob’s tune in order for your guy to do anything you would still have to send your ECU to a third party to have it unlocked then purchase the dedicated MEFI/Polaris software to tune it .. like I said…. that right there is a grand with no guarantee your guy would, or could use the dedicated software. These ECU’s do not communicate with any of the commercially available tuning software. Your guy can’t even read the tables let alone make any adjustments. Even the dealers can’t, Polaris has it locked up tight.

With Bob’s tune and that this is a “learning ECU” with a fairly wide window to self adjust it’s much more forgiving than your ZX10R and even the most free flowing exhaust and intake have a small impact relative to your bike. With the Slingshot the biggest gains are in throttle response, drive-ability, and power under the curve, not peak output. However if you go to the Maggie Valley event, and Bob attends this year, if you set it up before hand he is usually willing to take a ride with you and tweak your tune on the road. Active real world tuning is better than on a dyno.

EDIT: With a CAI, Header, Cat Delete, and free flowing exhaust Bobs tune made a huge difference in my Slingshots manners, but mine was a very early production unit when the factory tune was really funky. Polaris has made significant improvements in the tune since then.

But if you are looking for any real gains in peak output forget everything else and just call up

Chasing N/A power gains on this motor is a loosing proposition. You will have a good chunk of the cost to go forced induction in it and only make 10% of the gains …………..
