As stated, the appropriate way is for the needles to go to the full rich position, as prescribed by J Nutter, which is in to the carb throat. Honestly, I just took the needles out altogether, which was a mistake at first, but I've since tuned around. It made little difference once the carb had been retuned. I didn't even realize I'd screwed up until a month or so later when one of the forum members pointed out my bassackward thinking. Probably would've been easier to retune after the bypass, but whatever....
Of course then the carter would start crapping out all the time (months after the bypass) so it went straight to hell (hopefully) and it got swapped for the motorcraft.
the pulse air can come out as well as all of the EECU wiring. I'm guessing by this point you've ensured you don't have any etesting in your area. Even a stringent visual inspection (by a tech who has actually seen a jeep before) can fail you for lack of OEM equipment.
There really are no other tricks, so to speak, it's pretty easy.
