Please note that engine kits do not come with recommendations for jetting or tuning. There are too many variables including exhaust, elevation, intake fuel system (fuel injection or carbs), climate, fuel, etc - all of which affect tuning. You’ll need a wide band o2 sensor to verify your jetting. Ideally you want your target AFR to be 12.8:1-13.2 under full throttle – part throttle and idle can be a bit leaner in the high 13s to low 14s. As far as timing, you can start with somewhere between 28-32 degrees full advance at 3500 rpm, but again, this isn’t a hard and steadfast rule. We would recommend going onto the shoptalkforums to see if anyone has a recommendations or you can refer to one of many carb tuning books that provide baselines to start with.
