Would this be an accurate list of Indian Performance Stage 1-3 upgrades?

STAGE 1 PERFORMANCE
Slip-On Exhaust (my choice Freedom Performance)
Thunder Stroke Air Intake (3% increase in horsepower)
Lowering Rear Shock Kit by Fox (ride performance and low-slung look)
Oil Cooler (AZ desert needed), Chrome Oil Filter (looks cool)

STAGE 2 PERFORMANCE (Stage 1 needed)
Thunder Stroke Cams (13% increase in horsepower, 7% more torque)
Thunder Stroke Clutch Kit (needed for high performance stage kits)

STAGE 3 PERFORMANCE (Stage 1 & 2 needed)
Thunder Stroke 116 Big Bore Kit (20% increase in horsepower, 15% more Torque)

Oil cooler is superfluous. You don’t need it. I live in a desert hotter than Arizona.

No need for the HP Clutch. I have the 116 bbk and was told by many experts it was not necessary.

I believe stage three comes with different cams than the stage two cams. Stage two cams are very mild. Also I do not think lowering kit or oil cooler are part of stage one kit. Just the air cleaner and slipons.

Well I have done the stage 2 with the PVCX and custom Dyno Tune and loved it , then did the 116 upgrade and too be honest it is great but the extra dollars are not that much more bang for the bucks so I voting towards the stage 2 with a PVCX ,only because of the cost of the 116 kit does not give you that much riding experience.I admit you do get the extra torque and I love that over power any day. But the $$$$$ nar.

Especially when you can get very close to the BBK by just doing Lloyds cams. About the same performance for a lot less $$$$. You just wont get the cool 116 emblems.
