sorry, what I had meant by tuned was "not stock" jets that they ship with. thanks for clarifying, which you probably did before. I'm not trying to pretend that it is going to be drop on correct.Dont assume that. The carb i pulled off the engine had damage so i gave you the one from in the barn. That means last time it was used it was mounted to a turbo...so..with it ebing leaned out and then being mounted to a turbo as a suck through probably means 1 of 2 things.
The original turbo setup had so many boost leaks that it was over fueling to the amount of air going into the engine (highly likely) and thats why it was leaned out
or 2 lean makes more power but also more damage. and thats why it was leaned out.
one of the secondary jets was so tight that it will need to be drilled out to remove, so it's staying there and i'm going to primarily mess with the carter, and use the edelbrock for messing with for future needs and knowledge. edit: while robbing it of parts and such
