It is the only way to tell how your mixture is without an exhaust gas analyzer.
i am sure that you are right about that giving me more power but i don't think that is my problem right now (i did pull the muffler off and it is not blocked) it did at one point during the time i owned it rev very freely without load, now it wont.
