should work with the pc3 just need the proper map loaded.
definitely need either heat shields, thermo wrap or ceramic coating. I cooked my boot on the pipe the first day i decided to run them with no shielding.
as for place to get them, i got them off ebay brand new from some company like 90 bucks less than everywhere else.

Dynojet has a Thunderheader map on their web site to download .
I bought mine from American classic motors (eBay), had it in less than 5 days
Heat shields....Depends . if you are running forwards, you wont "need" them . I didn't have them on my FXDWG, and never had any issues . They do help cover the discoloration the chrome ones get . So, it's all up to you .

i have a thunderheader on my 06 streetbob...love it! also have the power commander, just have to map it. You definitely want heat sheilds or wrap it or coat it. The only thing i dont like is (i have chome w heat sheilds) the chrome where the 2 pipes meet started to rust rather quickly, i probably will paint or coat them in the future. They perform great and sound good

just put thunderheaders on mine last week. Love them so far. Yes, heat shields are a must. HOWEVER, i was told they have to be bought seperate? Ordered mine from Direct Harley Parts. I had a discount card but before that they were 479 shipped. When i opened the box i realized they actually had the heat shields in there...so there you go....you might get lucky like i did, or ya might not....

I love the sound and performance of the t-header but like some others have said, the finish is less than perfect. I just took mine off this weekend because I noticed some rust and pitting on various parts of the pipe. It would be nice if they would come out with a full coverage heat shield because at this rate all I can do is paint it, I don't think re-chroming is an option.

I love the sound and look of my T-header's (dyna, shovelhead) but the chrome is **** and their customer service is worse then the chrome. Would I buy one again, I don't know. I like the look and sound of the Bassani Road Rage.

i always say the same thing. Most other companies offer full heat shields... Dont know why they dont , the finish is my only complaint with these pipes..i guess thats why so many wind up painting them or wrapping them or just order them in black from the get go

I don't like how the rear header pipe comes forward on the Dyna model TH, so I bought a Softail TH and built my own mtg. bracket. I would definitely go with heat shield or wrap, the TH does get HOT.

I bought a TH from J & P Cycles for my Fat Bob in the fall and used a TTS Mastertune for the dyno. It was a nice performance and sound upgrade from my SE slip ons. Yes, the chrome sucks and they discolor, but I really don't give a rip. You can always wrap them. I'm totally happy with the pipes so far.
