    I am running way too rich at idle and cruising but if I stomp on it, it is perfect.

    Edelbrock is sending me .070 jets and metering rods to go with it. My carb comes stock with .069 jets. Why is Edelbrock going up in jet size?

    Anyone here with a Edelbrock Q-jet? Can you tell me the correct jets and rods to use here at 5200 ft.?

    Well if you're way too rich at idle, that's an adjustment problem.

    If you're too rich at cruise, you need to go smaller on jets unless you make a drastic metering rod change.
