    Upgrading to E1, What pitch will I need?

    I've searched and can't find the answer. I'm upgrading my FZR from a LB to an E1 with the mods in my signature. I realize I will probably need to get the limiter raised on my R3 (currently set at 8450) to normal R3 limit (8850), but still don't want to spin it that fast. What pitch will I need to keep the RPM's at about 8600 (I currently have a 12/19 160mm)? Or will I be able to get the RPMs down enough with the L13 cone and an 85mm nozzle?

    try tuning with the lucky 13 cone. failing that pitch 1 degree at a time until you get where you want to be.

    I'm hoping I can do it with the cone alone, since I'm currently running it with the thinnest spacer and 87mm nozzle, I think adding spacers and using my 86mm nozzle should get it close. Depends on how much faster the E1 is going to spin it.

    That's less than I'm running now with my LB wheel, and I'm almost on the limiter

    I'm turning right around 8400 with the LB and 12/19. So maybe I can keep it around 8600 with more spacers in the cone and the E1. I guess I'll find out when I get the E1 put in.
