STAGE 1 upgrade

I’m new to this forum and also just recenlty purchased my 2012 Stryker. Love it! but dissapointed in it’s low-end performance. I’ve done some research and I’m I’m planning on doning what my mechanic calls a “Stage 1 Upgrade” – putting on the Van & Hines Twin Slash Staggered pipes, Intake air filter, and Power Commander, and dialing it all in on the dynamometer. Cost is going to be about $2k which I’m fine with, just want to make sure I’m going to see a performance difference when it’s done. I’m looking for feedback from anyone who has done these upgrades, and is an “Auto Tune” nececary also or is that already part of the Dyno Jet Power Commander that I’m getting? Regards, Terry

Save yourself 900 and get the autotune
that or the Gman Bully tuner...only $280 and it's been getting positive feedback on this forum.

I dont remember where I read this ... but I think that a guy here in the forum reported a 17hp increase with the autotune, V&H pipe and the Cobra Powerflow...
Ya that sounds a bit high but could be.
So is there a stage 2 or 3 as there is for carb bikes?
I'm not aware of any internal upgrades for our bikes...surely there's someone out there making cams and bore kits for the v-star engines though.
