Tune for the Power Commander V (2010 Triumph Thunderbird 1600)
Thatch on Triumph Rat brought up a few valid points that we feel should be addressed.
1) Will the Triumph TOR tune work with our pipes. Our hunch is that the TOR tune will be a little on the lean side; historically our pipes flow better than the Triumph TOR on other models. The Shorty Tune may be an alternative, but we are not going to rely on triumph’s supplied tunes. We will be developing a custom map for the British Customs Thunderbird 1600 exhaust.
2) How will the tune be updated to the Triumph Thunderbird 1600? Previously we developed our custom tunes using a Power Commander; Tuneboy made it so that Power Command tunes could be converted to work with their program. With the development of the Power Commander V I am sure Tuneboy is working around the clock to make sure they can covert the Power Commander V Tunes as well.
3) Will the Cat Box Elimination Kit work with the British Customs Slip-On exhaust? No, during sound testing we made some very interesting observations. We will be following up by posting a video and explanation very soon. Please stay tuned.
Update: The Power Commander V is being developed as we speak and, hopefully, in the next 30-60 days the Power Commander V will be released. Until then we will be unable to develop a custom tune for the Triumph Thunderbird 1600 exhaust. As soon as the Power Commander V is available we will be working with Mickey Cohen at Mickey Cohen Motorsports to develop a custom map for the Triumph Thunderbird 1600. Mickey Cohen is one of the best tuners in Southern California and helped us develop the tune for our EFI Triumph Bonneville / Thruxton Performance Package. When we are developing our custom tune we will run a dyno run with both TOR maps along with our pipes. Only then will we know if the TOR map will work with our exhaust. We will be posting updates regarding the Triumph Thunderbird 1600 Power Commander V as it becomes available.
