So it is possible, due to tolerances, for a 90 to flow exactly the same or very close to a 91 or an 89.
    That's why I need someone in Boise to run out with me and index this bitch! Because I'm not a expert on Jets and I'm just trying to find out everything I can. I appreciate yer guys help and thanks for the info! I can do all yer basic shit but tuning motors I can't!

    Well I went out and ran it today but put the original jets back in it! I screwed up, I didn't pull the jets so it has 86s all the way around, now after a 12 pack of beer and reading shit with a flash light you can see how 86 can become 98 upside down! Anyway it's Beyond Scary ass fast when you open her up I never even got past 1/2 throttle because the Ol' lady was screaming to slow down.But it will not idel worth a shit you have to keep giving it gas or or it will die.

    Holley did, and may still, sell close tolerance jets. each was flow checked and marked. They come in set of 3 for each size. One at the bottom of the flow tolerance, one in the middle and one at the top. With 2% spred across all three. 1% big and small from the middle jet. And they are $$$$$

    Holley jets are fine. You just have to be aware of the actual diameters.
    Look at 80,81 & 82. Those are the same drill sizes. So you are not changing as much as say changing a 94 to a 95.

    What you are doing frankly scares Hell out of me. Especially knowing holley jet sizes and their numbers.


    Bob,

    for accurate tuning, who's jets would you recommend???

It's set for sea level, what would be my base primary and secondary jets at this level? It's running 6lbs of boost .0020 valve lash (hot) solid lifters, 29 degrees timing? Any help would be much appreciated!
    It probably makes sense to check with Ron or Joey Grose and see what they recommend,, I think the norm is 1 jet size down per 2000 feet, so if everything was truly correct and set for sea level,, maybe drop all the jets one size only to start.
