You will need to load a base map into it, If you have a laptop it can be done yourself. There are dyno tuned maps available on this site that wouldn't need much if any tuning.

You can load the base map using your desktop before installing the PC5. You will also need to get the O2 sensor bung welded to your header, if I remember correctly it goes around nine inches from the mounting flange. there is some pics of this on this site just search the threads.

The PCV operates off of a map just like the PCIII, what it does is slightly adjusts the map for changes in the weather/elevation and such. When I say slightly I do mean slightly. Its like a computer controlling the manual buttons on the PCIII(which is like 3% at best which is almost squat if your trying to tune instead of tweak). You need to tune the map and then the PCV can tweak from there.

My PCV can adjust the base map up to 20%. You can set the allowable adjustment limits from 5-20% from base and also turn it off to run base only.

What was the deciding factor to go with the FMF over any other programmer?

The further it has to adjust the worse of a job it does, 3% is about it on the accuracy. This is some of the "trouble" some tuners are having with the PCV.

I went with it because because it's from fmf same as my exhaust system,I don't have a computer or labtop,didn't want to weld anything to the header. Just seemed an easier fix somthing I could put on...hopfully without having to send it to a dealer.witch I found out later there are ajustments on it.I hope I can just install it and it works.maybe I won't have to send it to the dealer for ajustin it.I just wanted a quit fix the others seemed complicated to me.I had to have the dealer put the power commander on my vtx 1800 when I put hypercharger and exhaust system on it...and it wasn't cheap
