Dumb question...someone help

I was having problems running my flatslides on my 93...which is why i have them for sale on the for sale forum...nothing wrong with them...just dont know nothing about tunin um...anyway, my question is...would a hotter than stock plug and a smaller main jet(than 164) help the carb to run a lil better? She idles and runs good...just bogs a lil before 5grand..a friend of mine suggested it. Just wondering if there is any truth to that scenerio

Re: Dumb question...someone help

Have you had it on a dyno? With a O2 sensor reading your exhaust?

Be good to know what kind of AFR you are running, help you get the proper jet sizes.

If you want to still run the flatslides.. I would recommend it at least. It is good to know what kind of AFR you are getting.
