Holley squirters

I was reading a few article in Shelby American that several people who own the Holley carb are increasing the size of the squirter nozzle in the primaries and secondaries. Those who were running .28 went with .31 or even .35 on the nozzles and stated that their performance and acceleration increased tremendously. It also eliminated the hesitation on hard acceleration. Any ideas or thoughts before I go out and purchase nozzles?

There is no canned answer. If you are not having an issue you probably will not see any difference. If you are experiencing a stumble then it may or may not help. A carburetor is something that if you dont know what you are doing and why you are doing it you probably will make it worse.
I dont see and real performace to be gained by upping the squirter size. The first adjustment is usually the pump cam or actuator. I would look at these if you are having a stumble issue first.
