    I installed a cvperformance carb recalibration kit this week. The kit included hi and low speed jets, emulsion tube new needle and diaphram spring. The engines runs a lot better (perfect) cold and seems to have more performance in mid range. I would say that cold it runs as good as an efi engine except for idle being a little slow right at start up. I don't use the enrichener. I figure I have lost about 15 miles per tank, but if I don't burn a piston or valve it is worth it. I figured it out at 42 mpg U.S. (50 Canadian). I ran 193 miles highway at 70 mph so figured not too bad. On the whole I am happy with the way it is running. It even sounds better at idle
