    Only what's necessary to get to the dealer for a download assuming it's not 40 miles away or so.

    it had the slip ons on it when i bought it but i was getting the occasional popping on decel and big pop on accel. i figured it was trying to breathe more so i ordered a screaming eagle stage 1 air kit. i was gonna put it on and then rejet in a week or 2. it's a 97 so it requires a swap out of the jets. i feel like i'm stuck in the middle. any advice?

    Re jetting isn't that difficult. Take a look here, while these apply to a twin cam, it's the same thing for your evo.
