Thunder Header X-Series vs. Decat headpipe and RC mufflers.
All four tabs were bent about half way out.

Looks good Joe, cam and pipe seem to work well together. How did it tune?

That pipe took the dip right out. Nice.

Interesting, can't see many jumping on that cam.  Doesn't hit 110 tq until almost 3700 rpm.  Already other bolt in's out hitting 110 much earlier, as the OP probably knows.

Interesting observation
Most are looking for 100 ftlbs before 2500 rpm
this has nice wide torque band, kicks in early and climbs, and hangs in there
good bagger cam in my opinion
( unless you're dragging a dead elephant behind you )

and an excellent tune Joe  :up:

You may want to see other pipes tuned with this cam and other cams tuned with this pipe before you draw that conclusion. Many things to consider when it comes to torque curves but I will say this is more of a right side combination and great for some riding styles.

After putting an 823 cal into it, it did start and tune in pretty good.

   Joe I'am surprised how close your run is with Jamie,s run, being you guys were running different exhaust.

I've ridden a couple M8's with bolt in's.  Too me, they don't pull that much better than the stock cam unless you can push 110 tq around 2,500 rpm's.  Stock is 100 where this looks like 105 in that rpm range. 

As far as mufflers, I've heard the good ones are all close, I know the smaller baffle sizes are holding tq better but not 5+ that I've seen.  This cam does have strong usable/peak hp
