What works for someone else wont always work for you.
Humidity,temperature, altitude, exhaust system etc etc will all make a difference to how it runs.

You can try a 120 PAJ. It tends to allow the pilot to flow more fuel in on larger pilot jets. I run the 70 PAJ with my 48 pilot. NCMountainman runs the 120 PAJ with his 50 or 48 pilot jets. The difference is subtle. :)

I run a 100 PAJ with my 48 pilot. Very happy with it. :) If the original jetting Q's post is still out there somewhere, one of the pioneers of jetting research on this site had made a post of the relationship of PAJ to PJ and how they afffect the pilot circuit. Basically a bigger PJ requires the correct PAJ to flow the proper amount of fuel. I have tried running the 100 PAJ with smaller PJ's and it is noticable that with a 100 PAJ/45 PJ combo is a little lean for my conditions while a 80/45 combo works well but doesn't offer the same torque off the bottom as the 100/48 combo.
