I love the looks of the round tornado intake more than the square intake with the forcewinder. But I love the forcewinder filter more than the tornado filter lol. Can you give me measurements? Will the forcewinder filter fit on the tornado intake? The tornado intake is a 3 inch tube I THINK but I don't know what the specs on the forcewinder filter are. Can you help me?? Thanks!

the forcewinder is a 2.5" filter. I went through the same thing for my l&m cover and even tried calling k&n to find one that would fit to no avail. wish i could be more help and if you have any other questions on these two intakes im all know how.

I went that route once with open filter, on both styles of intakes. Sold both on here, I will see if I can find part number for the 2.5" filter

I've got the forcewinder, it does literally push your right leg out, but I put up with it because I absolutely love the look of the thing. My Highway hawk forwards have a wide enough peg so I'm not in danger of loosing my footing as you would with a stock peg. Footboards are against my religion !

From what I hear from both companies is that the tornado intake has a 3 in outer diameter tube and the forcewinder filter has a 3 in tube opening so at least, from what I hear from the companies, is that they will fit together. Hopefully that's true!

As I compare price mixing and matching its going to be more expensive than if i just get one or the other. Honestly I like them both but I like the bigger forcewinder filter. But I'd go for whatever one has proven itself a little more.

put them under/inside the left side cover above the tool kit or relocate the tool kit & use all the space, plus it locks with the key

You can't use the PC5 on the mean streak.

You may want to search on here, several members have gotten rid of their controllers all together and report better mileage and performance. I have not tried dumping mine yet and have no opinion - you just may want to read up before you buy.

So with a tornado intake and cobra straight pipes with the stock map would be better than a power commander with the? That seems like a long shot...i don't see how that's possible...I want to dyno the bike as I go for each mod. I have the pipes but that's how it came. Interesting read I bet
