Fitting Booster Plug and De Cat Question?

I am looking to fit both of the above. Was looking to fit both myself at the same time. My question is can I fit at same time? I know you after fitting to run engine till fans kick in to get ECU to adjust settings. Can I fit both or will i need to fit 1, run correct ecu, and then fit the other? Hope that make sense. I was also thinking about using the TEC Bike parts for the booster and x pipe, I have watched several TEC vids on Yourtube and the fella seems to have his head screwed on. Any reason anyone know of why I should source other suppliers?

Wasn't completely sure where to post this thread if a mod wants to move to another section feel free.

There won’t be an issue fitting them at the same time.
I would also recommend doing the “12 minute tune” as well.

Hey, Fancy Pants -- we can't all afford a full-blown Power Commander V, big cams and dyno-tuning for every bike we own like you! (or maybe we CAN afford it but we're just cheap bastards).

In any case the Booster Plug is a pretty clever, easy plug & play way to fool your ECU and richen-up your fuel mixture at low-end throttle range. So let us wannabees have our fun.

PS: Please post more of your mods and crazy dyno test results. We like to live vicariously thru you and your thick wallet.

Did you let the ecu learn? it is supposed to adapt to minor changes.
