    Default set- ups for tuning

    Hey guys, just wondering what kind of tuning set ups you run like jet sizes and timing. Iam runing 88 primary and 96 secondary and 32 degrees full advance timing. Also do you guys change for winter temps?

    i believe tunning set-ups have alot to do with the particular combo u r running, ie: c.i., type of drive,(jet or v-drive), carb sz, n/a or blown, 2x4, 1x4, pump gas or av gas etc...every1's set-up is different, what works for 1, may not work for another...it boils down to what works for u ...sometimes, trial & error is the way to get it rite...altitude, rather than summer/winter plays a part in jetting ur carbs...where do u run most?...just my .02 cents

    I run mostly in Needles. I know that different mods call for different tuning, guess i should of been more precise in my question. For naturally aspirated motors. I run a dual plane manifold, 850 carb, 472 c.i., 10.5 comp, and 615 lift cam. just trying to compare to see if Iam pretty close to others specs. Some people tell me Iam running to fat but I have never seen black smoke and dont smell excessive fuel

    if the set-up u r running is working for u, then leave it alone! ...the only thing i would chng, is the sec jets to 88's...IMO, 96's are too big of a jump from the primarys, except if the pv is blocked off, in which case, there prob ok!

    Fwiw, I picked up an AEM a/f ratio gauge for 200.00(used) and a set of headers for 100.00, just for tuning. I've never been to great at reading plugs, and I've heard a few times with todays fuel additives, it makes it pretty tuff. I figured it's cheap insurance and peace of mind.

    thanks Wicked, ill have to give you a call. Ive seen that propduster boat, one bad mofo. Does Pat hang out with Hounddog and all those boys in willow valley. I was thinking of getting a wideband a/f meter just as a piece of mind also because ive lost 200 rpm in my quest of tuning. cant seem to figure out where it went. Ive tried alot of different set-ups, even changing plugs. I think that last time i checked i was like 2 thread counts but its hard to read. thanks guys
