I need a lil help with my Maintenance calories.
Does 2700 sound about right for a guy that has been lifting for about 1 & 1/2 year weighting 160 LBS and is 5'9, probably around 14% bodyfat

No idea. Depends on your daily activity levels. Easy way to check though. Eat 2700kcal a day for a week or two. See what happens. If you gain weight, your Maintenance numbers are lower. If you lose weight, they are higher. Adjust as needed.
