Default Changing pipes?

I plan on getting a 086 pipe for my Go 3 sport. I currently use a JP2, question is, will I have to re-tune or can I just slap it on and go?

But it might not be that far off.
I know the JP2 is a top end pipe
I not 100% but isn't the 086 a top end pipe also?

if so the tune might not be that far off.
But in general all pipes make power differently so the tune will also be different

The JP2 is a bigger volume pipe as compared to the 086. They are both shorter pipes designed more for rpm than torque. The tune will change from one to the other but the 086 should work fine with that motor. The JP2 usually runs a richer setting when comparing it to a smaller volume pipe and you will most likely have to lean the 086 a little to get the performance out of it.
