Which fuel controller PC3 or PCV

I have a 2008 with the 13 tooth sprocket, Uni Air Filter, EHS Lid. I only have money for either the controller or exhaust right now so the controller comes first. Since you can not easily change the map on the EHS controller I was going to buy the Power Commander. Are there any real benefits to one over the other? Thanks in advance for any help...

PS - If it matters I am looking at either the Barkers exhaust or FMF 4.1 with power bomb to be my next purchase after the controller.

Do these "controllers" work like most and simply widen the pulse width to the injector to richen it up?

I believe that's right. Except the Power Commanders can also subtract fuel, which I don't think the Dobeck-style units can. Plus, they can run full fuel maps like a car, complete with TPS inputs. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Dobeck/HMF units can't do that.

Between Power Commanders, I would get the 5. I DON'T have any of these units, so I'm just going off what I've read. But the 5 is significantly smaller, and can run an Autotune if you wanted to expand in the future. To me, that's the way to go.

I have the PC5 and love it. the biggest difference would be that you can add the autotune to the 5 which will help fine tune the fuel mapfor you, a big plus when you add mods later on.

you cant go wrong with either both are a really good controller how ever if you want the autotune feature the 5 is the way to go but i believe there are more maps for the 3.

Folks remember with the Commander its not just about downloading maps from the Net or elswear then going riding. To get the full benifit of the Commander you need to get it on the Dyno and that's wear the Commander really shines over other standard Fuel controllers.

Thanks for the input. You guys are great...

PC V sounds good since it does everything the PC III does and more. Curious though. I really dont like Dyno time. Does this mean that the PC will not produce good power without the Dyno tune? I dont care about every last hp/tq. I have the PC III on my HD and it worked well out of the box.

Would the EHS setup be any better since they do a lot of work with the TRX?

Trying to be plug and play since I dont race at all.

Thanks again

Bill
