    First off, is the 95" factory big bore (on 2005 fat boys) the same as adding a stage II upgrade to an 88CI engine? How many HP do each put out? In your opinion, if you wanted something more than stock, would you look for a 2005 95" fat boy or would it be better to have a stage II installed on an 88CI engine?
