    single-bore-tuned-induction-kit - what a lot of words to describe an air filter!
    You may need to consider a new ECU (also called a Tuner) as well to make the most of the modifications as it will allow adjustments to the fuel, air and timing.  Something programable with an Autotune function wuld be my suggestion - and there are a fair few out there with everyone really likeing the one they happen to own so that they do not look like idiots for spending big $$$ on a flop...lol...

    Research is your friend here plus an understanding of how hands on you are....me for example; I have a Thundermax with Autotune and am happy plugging my laptop into it and tweaking settings because thats how I roll - I'm a tinkerer.  Some folks are not as techy and are happy to let the Dealer install a screaming beagle or the like and then Dyno it.

    Not sure if they do actually.  I think they plug the Harley Screamng Beagle Super tuner, which I have no actual experiance with.
    I believe the Thundermax AU folks are "easyr.com.au"

    Wideys run a 1” shorter shock to most Dynas and the V&H Pro pipe scrapes at the back.

    The pro-pipe is a great buy. They do hang out of the bike more than say a 2 to 2 so will scrape. But most will anyway.
    Only thing that is annoying with Pro-pipe is getting axle in and out

    any other 2in1 to avoid this problem? 
    I don't want shortshot anymore, too loud. 

    Actually I want a long one because with shortshot on my 883, i smell petrol at all traffic light. not very healthy.

    because of too much vibration?

    No, it’s just that the V&H Pro is a fat ass pipe. IMO D&D make better performing pipes that don’t scrape.
    Mind you, I run the V&H BR 2-1. Only scrape at the front.

    Hi
    the intake I mentioned in the op, says "Only fits models with Delphi fuel injection".  is this what 2016 Dyna Wide Glide using? its a stock bike with slip on atm.

    On my 2010 Dyna I'm running a D&D bob Cat with a Dynojet Powervision
    On my 2014 Dyna I'm running V&H big shots with a Fuelpak FP3
    Arlen ness big suckers on both.

    If you're planning on goping above stage 1 I would go the powervision route. If you'll be staying iwth a stage 1 the FP3 will do the job.

    Both of these options are probably half what a dealer will sting you.

    I have ordered the S&C dual runner intake mentioned in the OP. 
    Now I need to decide what pipe to have. Has anyone heard about red thunder? It's made in Italy. It looks like thunderheader. 

    However, a guy on the youtube comment section said that his pipe got a dent only after his daughter accidentally threw basketball on it. He didn't tell whether it is thunderheader or red thunder, couldn't it be that soft?

    Bassani Road Rage 2 into 1. Neat fit, tucks up ok, so scraping minimal, with good note and I think it works ok. On my 2016 FXDL with hi flow air filter behind stock cover and SE Super Tuner.

    hi
    thx for all answers above. 

    I got more questions though. 

    Today I talked to my local shop, the tech says it is possible to use stock pipe to do the stage 1, but air intake have to change. Is this true? (I already bought air intake) 

    My pipe is stock with Screaming Eagle slipon (with proper air intake and tuners of course). Using this for stage 1 is tempting as I can save money and also important: I think my current pipe looks pretty cool, at least none of the full pipe on the market provide significant improvement looking wise. 

    But if I use SE slipon for stage 1, is there any compromise? performance-wise? sound-wise etc? (if I can take baffle wrap out, or baffle and baffle wrap both out?)

    thx

    you have cat converter in the header so better to just buy a full exhaust system
    forget the shop, put new air cleaner on, buy full exhaust system and buy a tuner (fp3, PV etc)
