I am new to this adding pipes to a efi but is there anything that you are suppose to change. I mean when you put pipes on a carb you ajust the jetting what about the efi does it automaticly a just the fuel so it doesn't run lean. Will it run fine by just changing the single pipe to the psi twin pipe and cans. Sorry if this is a dump question i was just wondering. Thanks for you time.

I have the PSI pipes on my newly acquired ZR 580 Carb. With the carb you can increase the jet size to take advantage of the better flow characteristics of the pipes. On an EFI, you would have to somehow reprogram the ECM to find the right mixture. The good news; the EFI would jump into "limp home" mode if things "heated up".

So is that what those mod chips are for because the pipes did not come with one, and how do you like the pipes.
