    I have a 01 dyna super glide with SE air kit, V&H straight shot pipes, S&S 510G cam kit, adjustable push rods, high flow oil pump, high preformance lifter and high flow cam support plate. I'm starting to save up for my next upgrade but I can not make my mind up between the Revolution 98ci or S&S 95ci upgrade. I'm looking for + & - on these two and which one you think you would go with and why. Thanks for the imput!

    Without doing your heads..the 7 more cubes will not pick up a lot of hp or torque...The weakest link in all these Harleys..Evos/88 or 96s is in the heads...Unless you have high mileage...keep it an 88..you already have a decent cam so send your heads out and get a street port done on them,a little bigger intake valve,increase compression by way of head gaskets and a little milling and you will get a lot more out of this than just a 95in kit alone...I would not do the 95in kit if your not planning on doing the heads@ the same time...JMO

    Thanks, right now i'm right about 90K miles on the bike. I'm planning on putting different heads on as well. I just can't make my mind up on which way I want to go with it.

    Yeah..with 90k it's time...I have never heard anything bad about S&S...Good customer support and they stand behind their products...I have heard pros and cons about Revolution..S&S are @ most major ralleys...

    I knew S&S has really good stuff. I just haven't heard anything about Revolution. the S&S 95 is also about $250 cheaper then the Revolution 98. I don't know if 3 more ci is really worth the $250. Also I could go with heads from S&S and have cams, jugs, piston and heads from the same company instead of spread out.
