Cam for '08 96 c.i.

Cam for '08 96 c.i.

Postby jfrog73662 on Mon Oct 19, 2009 3:23 am

I read somewhere that I can get just as big a h.p. boost by changing cams as I can from going with 103 c.i. big bore install. If this is true which cam would you recommend for my '08 Dyna Fatbob and what other parts would I need? Also would you recommend going this route? Seems to me it would be much cheaper to change cams than to do a total topend replacment. Wonder what you have to say on the subject! I have stage one upgrade with SE race tuner and also have installed O2IED.

Actually you can get better HP from a bolt-in cam than the 103 kit.

For the TC96 bikes I recommend very mild cams to keep the primary power band under 4500 RPMs. The Andrews TW-26H or TW-54H are good choices. I also like the CycleRama CR-575 designer cam. You can get the CR-575 through CycleRama 727.546.0889.

For a starter map, use the 103CID Stage 2 map. That will get you very close.

Harley dealers here have a special running this month on 103 big bore install with SE-255 cam. HOw much HP and TQ can i expect from it with my twin cam 96? It's around 1500 bucks so I want to know all I can before I spend that kinda money and was wondering if you think it's worth the cost?

I am not overly thrilled about the SE Stage II upgrade. Your increased power is going to be 10-12% over what you have right now. I hate to give numbers because each dyno can be a little different. But I suspect the $1500 is for the parts, not the installation and the tuning. This is where my reluctance to support the upgrade comes in. Most riders installing this upgrade are expecting significant dyno numbers and this upgrade does not deliver. You can get more HP from a good cam and custom tuning. The SE 255 is an emissions compliant cam, so despite its specifications of high lift, it is essentially a 'stock' cam on steroids.
But if you are looking for torque under 3500 RPMs, the SE103 stage 2 is not too bad. Custom tuning can wake the engine up, but you end up adding another $600-1000 for SE Super Tuner and Dyno Tuning over just using the SE Stage II download.
So for raw dyno numbers and ridability, I still like the CycleRama CR-575 in a TC96 or 103 engine.
