Preferred pods kit?

I looks like its between the S&S and the max-air kits, unless there are anymore I am missing. Any preference? Bike is a 2007 vstar 1100 classic. Its going to be getting a cobra 2 into 1 HP exhaust, no other engine modifications otherwise.

I've heard a lot of good reports on Metric Magic.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!

I've got the S+S custom cycles kit and found it very easy to install. The instructions are clear and concise. Had the mod done in a little over an hour and a half.

A few things added and more stuff to follow

I bought all the parts for my pod conversion instead of going with a Kit and saved quite a bit of $$..... all the info is in the Wiki for Vstar, all you need is 2 knn filters, one UNI breather filter, 2 150 main jets and it recommends a 20 pilot but that might be too small, you can try something bigger like I did.... I few people here pointed me in the right direction and now my bike is running great!!

Just so everyone is clear. Our pod kits come from SS Custom Cycle, not S&S Cycle. Big difference people. Not the same company.
