I've just recently completed a 350 with vortec heads and comp 268 cam, performer intake. Sitting on top of this is a qjet from a mid 70's truck.
Now it drives alright under slight to mild throttle, any more and it will stumble. I can't give it wot, it gets upset with me.
I know I'm lean, and my carb needs some tuning, probably bigger jets. I've tried tightening the secondary air flaps, minor help.
I want to take the carb off to convert it to electric choke. While I'm at it, I want to know what you think I should do for jets, metering rods, and other components before I go buy peices to rebuild it.
Any advice or recomendations appreciated.
One odd note. the car runs best with the screws all the way IN. I know this isn't common, most people I know with 2nd gens need to turn them out 3 or 4 times...
