New high performance small block trying to tune. Running rich, plugs are black. Is this going to need me to step down the jets or adjust the idle mixture. thanks Clay

If you are blowing black smoke out of the exhaust, then you definitely need to jet it down. Here is a site (although ugly) I found to be very useful. Had the same problem on a buddy's 68 - we jetted it down and adjusted the mixture. Now she runs great and burns clean!
