Thread: Nozzle chat/sizing....

I have an 85mm GPR nozzle on my FZ. I know that the stock FZ nozzle is odd shaped (oval) and I cant remember the size. But since I put the GPR nozzle on is there something I should do with the stock exit nozzle now also?? Just seeing what little stuff I can or could to to jump to 80 with my current setup.

the steering is oval that needs to be opened up round and at 92 mm

If you bore it, you'll want it 92mm(stock is 87 x 90). I doubt it'll give you much more top speed, maybe a few tenths, but it should improve acceleration a little. Just make sure the machinest knows it's important to get the hole centered. I had one done at a local shop for $20 to replace the plastic stocker on my GPR, & they screwed it up. A friend of mine did another one for me at his dad's shop on a 3-axis lathe & got it perfect. Just keep in mind, boring the steering nozzle to 92mm will give you a big dead spot in the steering if you go back to the stock 83mm reduction nozzle come fall, so you might want to buy a second one to have bored if you go this route. They've gone up in price a little but can still be had from boats.net for $30.
The R&D cone would help your top speed a little too.
