    FX140 Nozzle

    Looking to replace the 04' FX140 stock deflector nozzle with the cross shaped veins to a 2008 SHO deflector nozzle.

    Any ideas on the resultant performance from the swap? What impact will the loss of the 4 veins from the FX140 nozzle have when switch to the SHO noz?

    that is not a good idea, the fx 140 steering nozzle measures like ~ 95mm and the SHO one is oval and measures 87x90 mm
    if you decide to run the SHO steering nozzle atleast bore it out to 92-93mm

    Only thought about it because the FX140 and GPR share the same pump setup and the GPR uses the SHO nozzle fine. Appreciate your input and much thanks for the heads up and I can count that as money saved!

    are you talking about the plastic steering nozzle? If you are I would replace it with something stronger as they are prone to cracking and falling to pieces leaving you with no steering.

    the fx 140 steering nozzle is aluminum not plastic like the gpr.

    Coco...whats the issue with the nozzle radius? 83mm 85mm et cetera. I assume its to do with thrust issues and increasing pressure or decreasing pressure in the pump, just want to be sure I know whats going on.
