Just curious how many have done this?
I couldn't get my 700 DP to idle without cranking up the idle to a ridiculous level.

I' have done it before but brain fade has made me forget what size i started with i think 3/32 but maybe alex can answer damn i hate getting old!Start small and if its better but not good go to the bigger size.Could always try cracking the secs open a little first to see if that will help then you will know the holes will work

Are your secondaries opened a little. Have you tried to adjust them? RAY

I tried to adjust the secondaries a little bit but it wasn't enough. I drilled the holes last night be haven't had an opportunity to fire the car up yet.
