hi i just bought a set of twin pipes for my 98 ZR600efi with a clutch kit, efi chip, and a fuel pressure regulator. but the chip that i got is for a 99 ZR600efi. just curious to whats the dif and if there'd be any problems with me jamming it in my 98? and how does this stuff affect the reliablity of the sled compared to stock????

also what might i gain or loose with using the fuel pressure reg? and what do i do to adjust it? whats a good pressure to run?

any info will be appreciated. good or bad

best bet is to call black magic, or just check part numbers to see if there the same on their website. There pretty friendly and helpfull there. Thats what i did when i had a question if the EFI pipes would fit on a carb( i changed from EFI to Carb) Did you get your pipes with the loud stingers? or the quiet ones? (Just wondering, because i have the brand new dual quiet silencer i havnt used yet, ended up making my own stingers)

i have the same sled as you but i have the single dd pipe and chip and regulator and it has over 5000 miles now wit no major issues. With my regulator it just has a screw and a gauge that will let me raise or lower the pressure. not sure what mine is set at but i just kept lowering it until i got the plugs to a nice tan color and left it there.

you bought those off jordan right. as for the chip, I know that with the d&d chip you cant run a 98 chip in a 99 but you can run a 99 chip in a 98. I dont think that helped you out at all but best be is to call black magic and see. I hot the BM head on mine from jordan and I deffinatly noticed a difference. did you get a chip puller

thats great advice. so i am going to try the 99 chip in my 98 and see how things go. and ya putting in the pressure reg and turning it down till my plugs get to the nice brown will work out good too cuz now they are on the black side.

thats good to hear Matt. and ya got the stuff from Jordan.

I ran that setup for years on my ZR6 EFI without ever touching the fuel pressure. With that setup I would rather run it without the regulator then attempting to lean it out to much. On the low end it really helped to have the NGK Iridium plugs to clean out any richness at idle.

Suggestions:

-Add the Black Magic SSx notched weights for better hole shots and pull through mid-range
-Cermaic coat the pipes, as they love heat, and this will keep them nice and hot and require less RPM's for optimum performance (Also they look great)
-Definitly run premium fuels
-Use NGK Iridium Plugs
-Change your upper sprocket in the chaincase to a 19- I was running 19/41 gearing and it ripped from holeshot to top-end
-Run 1.25 or above track, unless you are studded, this sled will be making really good power
-use the fuel pressure regulator as a guage, I would not lean it out to much, but just ensure it is within spec of the manual.

Have Fun!
