    Question Dean's SVHO starter kit - is is really 80+ mhp?

    Been waiting for 2019 FX SVHO models to hit dealer stock, and on meantime shopping for performance boost. Figured that 80mph will be good enough for me. Noticed that Dean's SVHO starter kit advertising "80+ mhp" with only ECU tune, prop, filer and strainer.
    To achieve same speed with Riva, Stage 2 is required with lot more parts, including intercooler, valve retainer etc.

    I have read in other threads that Dean's tunes are solid and reliable, but it's hard for me to ignore such a difference in required upgrades between RS2 and Deans starter pack. Does someone on this forum has first hand experience with Deans SVHO starter kit to confirm 80+ mhp speed? Any reasonable reliability concerns? I am shooting for 200+ hours of trouble free rides.

    Thanks!

    Dean is legit. He's been working with me on the vxr and seeing improvements. But as far as the gp, I have a buddy who's still building with Dean but his results are impressive to say the least.

    Leave it stock then.

    i'm riding a 2018 GP1800 with the riva stage 1 + hitting 82 on 91 octane pump gas Tune, Prop, Rideplate, Intake grate, and air filter. the GP is shorter & lighter then the FX SVHO

    Thank you for you responses.

    I will start with GPS bypass, intake and exhaust upgrades, perhaps Jim's ride plate and see how far this will get me. Based on what others reported, this should get me to ~78mph without pushing engine harder than designed.

    With just a reflash and supporting mods ( intake, prop ) my friend's ski saw 8 mph increase. Add Jim's mod & Leo's wedge and pick up 3 mph.

    Was it full reflash or just GPS bypass? Is limiter still set as factory 7700 rpm?
