What ignition are you going to run. Stock type ignition requires a lot of sensors and wiring. I built a Twin Cam B chopper this spring and used a Thunder heart ignition which required use of only the crank position sensor. I just followed the instructions that were included so it was pretty straight forward. The "module"needs to be mounted somewhere so I boxed out the front of the rear fender under the seat to make a place to mount it. 3,000 miles now and so far so good.

if your using an "A" engine go grab a 2000 up dyna manual, if your using a "B" engine get a softail manual. depending on the year your looking at wiring for a MAP sensor, cam sensor, crank sensor (depends on year) and a few other odds and ends.

I used a S&S setup on the last twin cam bike we built. pt#55-1012 harness with thier ist ignition drag pt#2102-0079. It uses all the HD sensors crank position, cam position etc. and they sell a harness so it just plugs together. Vulcan also makes a cam cover that accepts an evo style ignition but its cheaper to go the S&S route.

I am planning on using the Thunderheart ASM-5012 on my TC88 powered CFL. It seems to be most simple/economical way to go. http://www.thunder-heart.com/IgnitionCoils.html
