I opened the top e-hole and plugged the middle. I decided to power brake it to 2200 and check the O2 on the logger. It was missing a little and the AFR was jumping in the 11.5 to 12.5 range.
I need to put fresh plugs in it and see if it's cleaner.

Pulled a plug and it was very dark and sooty.
I put the IAB to 80 and put the mixture screws to 1/2 out. I had to feather it there, so I guess I'm in the right zip code as far as the idle is concerned.

What makes a billet better than a stock Holley block, assuming there are no internal leaks?

Are going to stay with your present tune up?? Did you order the main well plugs and mixture screws also as they don't come with the metering blocks..

These are complete blocks except for the emulsion inserts. I'll use the tune Nomad gave me and see what happens. To me, if a stock Holley block is drilled and tapped to be just as adjustable as a billet and it doesn't have an internal problem, I won't see any difference in idle characteristics from one to the other. I gotta get the car to a test session to really know what's going on. I thought I could get the idle right with the car in the garage. I run a 6.50 index class on Fridays, but I only get 1 free run before qualifying and then 2 qualifying passes. I'd love to get a curve somewhere close to yours. It might take a long time, but I'll keep at it. Or I'll drive to Jersey and let you have a crack at it!

You have 6/32 x 3/16 brass allen set screws for them? I guess you do as you did the holley blocks..You can just transfer the idle jets to the BLP blocks..

Donee aka slopoke gave me this idea when trying to get enough air to keep it running so you can do some adjustments and close off the air little bit at a time...It really helped out when your by your self.
You may have seen it already buy here it is..

Yeeaah, thanks Barry. I forgot all about that valve deal. All my inserts are 3/16's as per Tuners instructions. The guy that did my 9375 used 1/8's in places.

Ron,
why don't you solder those holes up in the butterflies? Soft solder, not much heat. I've seen it done.
Cheers Colin.

You can also put a rivet in there as a temp fix..
