Bumping this thread rather than create a new one...
I've been in touch with TRMN8TR and he is happy to get a set of his headers out to the other side of the world for me, which is awesome, so I wanted to ask the resident body of expertise about the plan I have for the exhaust in case I am missing something.
Plan is pretty simple:
- TRMN8TR headers - no cat, stock O2 sensor bung
- TMR 'slip-on' exhaust - no EXUP, servo buddy
- Triumph Arrow full system tune from dealer
So essentially I am piecing together a full system, but at a fraction of the cost. Now, my question is - is this a viable plan?
I like the TMR option primarily for the aesthetics, I think it looks a million times nicer than an awkward looking can hanging off the side and losing the lower fairing panel. I am running on the idea that performance differences between slip-ons is marginal, and I'm not fussed about fractions of kg in weight either.
Will the Arrow tune from a dealer work well enough for the adaptive function of the ECU to fine-tune? I'd really like to avoid doubling my outlay to go down the PCV/dyno road, though I know that would be the best outcome. I'm not chasing 150hp, just a modest performance gain, nicer look, and gruntier sound... on a lamentably restricted budget.
Any thoughts/ideas/suggestions greatly appreciated!
