Hi all!

I was just wondering what people at higher altitudes were running in their Edelbrock carbs. I'm a mile high in Denver and I'm trying to get a good base calibration. I read that the rule of thumb is 2% leaner for every 1500 feet of elevation. That puts me in the 8% range. Stock jets in my carb (1406) are .098 primary and .095 Secondary with a 075 x 047 metering rod.

I want to know what combo of jets and rods you guys are running. Anyone in Denver would be great!!

Thanks!!:D

less air means less fuel. If you jet up your making it super rich. Maybe change the metering rods till you have to put in smaller jets. Not sure because I don't mess with Eddy's too much but I think the rods you can only go so big or so small till you need to change the hole size in the jet so the rods seat.

You can then make it 12% leaner than stock by just switching the secondary jets to the primaries and vice-versa. This will give you .95 primary jets and .98 Secondary jets.
