I'm assuming these can be used without major mods (plus the plumbing is already there to pressurize the bowls). Literature suggests slightly stiffer springs and stage 3 jetting with richer mains. Do you guys install larger needle and seats or adjust float level? Pressurizing the float bowls was no problem on my 94 ZX9 same as yours already set-up for it. As for the springs I had to use a stock one + a dynojet one to keep the slides from blowing open too fast.I am hopefully going to do fuel injection soon if not I will have to find a source for stiffer springs.As far as jetting goes I still dont have that down quite right the bike showed no HP change between 250 and 215 main jet.If I keep the carbs I am going to have to experiment with needle profiles and such. 2. What is the stock fuel pump capable of (psi, hp)? I'm planning on replacing this pump and adding a high flow pump and boost sensitive fuel pressure regulator with return to tank. Is this what most of you carb guys are doing? Dont know about the stock fuel pump I am using an automotive heigh pressure pump with a Mallory by-pass type boost sensitive fuel pressure regulator. 3. I use a popoff valve on the sled, am planning to do so here. However, I know Rick uses a priority air inlet valve also, are the performance gains worth it? No input on this. 4. Any suggestions on the intake manifold? I have just a simple aluminum manifold with the tubing from the turbo coming over the frame where the stock Ram-Air tubes run. 5. Don't have room for an intercooler. How many of you are running without one? What kind of boost are you running on pump gas? >> I use pump gas on mine.I have an Aerodyne turbo with the boost set at 8lbs.My compression is lowered however to 9 1/2-1 because I intend to up the boost soon.
