"BCV" Needle
Known as a swinging needle because they sit on a spring which locates into the hat/cup end of the needle and have sideways movement.They start with part number prefix CUD for HS type carbs
I have a supercharged 1380 motor with an su carb, Have tried bcv needle and bdk needle, car is on a dyno and we haven’t been able to get a good a/f ratio over 4K. And these two needles are very lean from start-up till 4K, what is your recommendation?

We list a few that are close to the BCV, but we do have 2 that are richer, BCA is the next one down and the BCG is very rich .  We would have to special order both so apx. 2 + weeks to get.
