I suppose that may well be the case. I will have a go if you like but I want some photos of the carb and I need to know the choke sizes.
The X19 1500 is some 85bhp on a Weber 34 DATR. Why is yours 75bhp? Because of the small carb? Some idea of the engine spec would help me.

Please clarify if you'd be so kind. It would be a good idea to state 'turbo' or 'atmo' as appropriate in the subject line. You can alter it with the edit function.

yes, I am hoping to get the kind of information I need to be helpful here but struggling as - sorry - the information re engine setup/installation is insufficient for me to comment.
To offer diagnostic one needs to know almost everything (in concise list layout) about the engine and inlet/ex system.
Turbofiat - your kind attention please!

Having the proper jet size will not help you when your boost pressure is higher than your fuel pressure! Why did you decide against the Megasquirt? You'd have plenty o fuel pressure with the regulator giving you more as your boost pressure goes up.
