All, I am looking to upgrade to a hypercharger, fuel manager and new pipes. I am not looking for loud pipes but I don't like the heaviness and restriction of the stock pipes. Any recommendations on what works best?

I did that and wasted an enormous time going through threads that had nothing to do with my bike. I figured this was an easier route to get specific info for a specific bike.

Most any after market pipe is going to be loud by your standards
Be careful on choosing the Hypercharger many complain about how it hits their knee

A friend of mine installed Vance & Hines Longshots and thought they were too loud. He then installed Hard Chrome "Quiet Baffles" and is happy as can be now.

I have a hypercharger, power commanderIII and V&H longshots,

The package is effective, but a tad loud with the pipes.

As far as the Charger and knee space, it does certainly make you move your leg out, but with a little playing with the pegs, (spacer in front to angle the peg) it is certainly comfortable and after a small adjustment time, you will not notice any interference.

As trocar said, I too have the Hypercharger Pro, PCIII and V&H Dual Baggers. A geat combination which I am very happy with, fitted almost from new. Ditto to what trocar said about the knee space, no big deal for me (looks great).

Roadhouse Dooley's I think have the nicest sound. I tried the hypercharger but it stuck out too far and bothered my leg so I went with a Thunder Tornado. I put the Power Commander on my Nomad as well. I would suggest you have it tuned on a Dynojet dyno to get all the mixtures set right. Mine came out at 66hp and 93 ft lbs torque. Don't be fooled by Hypercharger and ram air effect, there is none, it is all looks. I think the Tornado is the only way to go. You can look at pics of my 2006 Nomad on my website.
