dont know the speciific setting but most engine settings are around the HSN being 3-4 turns out from in; LSN should be flush.

Usually factory settings are way to rich anyway. Just make sure both needles are very rich and lean it out untill it runs smooth with the temps staying between 200-220 degrees. Of course you want it a bit on the rich side for break in as well and when you richen it up turn both the high and low the same amount. I don't think it would take more then 1/2 a turn so I'd start there.

I have had three sportwerks engines and loved every one of them but I never payed attention to how far out the needles were. All I did was adjust it accordingly.
