I have a 6.5 power valve. I am pulling right at 20" at idle (yea, mild cam.) I have been watching the vacuum while driving. Cruising in OD i'm around 12-15". When I punch it, it quickly drops below 5 so I haven't noticed any problem with the power valve. I haven't watched vacuum with a load, only empty. I know quick fuel makes a 4 door high flow power valve. I'm not sure what I have, I never paid attention. I just checked it for tears and figured it was good. Is there another way to get more volume of fuel other than a "high flow" power valve? How would I know if I need more fuel on the power valve circuit with out an afr gauge? It doesn't feel or sound lean under load.
