    I'd like to hear pros and cons about Vance and Hines tru dual headers and power dual headers. I bought some V&H monster ovals but I'm not sure which set of headers would be best.

    I have the V&H power duals with V&H hi-output slip on's and I am very happy. I also did a stage 1 with a PCV, this is agreat combo. Nice power upgrade and nice low rumble....

    There are other options if you want an X-Pipe type of solution, but you dont want to change the look of the bike.

    Fullsac and Fuelmoto both have X-Pipes that allow you to keep the stock heat shields.

    I personally dont care for the look of the Power Duals, but thats just me, glad there are choices.

    I am going with the V&H power duals on my new ultra. Two dealers told me you lose some power going with true duals.

    I have the V&H Dresser Duals and Rush slip-on mufflers. In my opinion a good setup, great sound and they look good on the Ultra. As far as power loss, nothing really noticable and she will still get up a go with a twist of the wrist. :D

    Performance wise - both have good #'s/results, but I didn't like the way these route under the bike/frame. I like TD's to do just that (route separately/each side) so my choice was Bub-7.
