Too ambitious ?? How small can you go?
Have the Idle tubes down to 0.023 jet. They look pretty small.

If you are using a .065" LIAB and .040" upper in the airhorn it will not need a lot of idle tube to put plenty of fuel to the mixture screws and transfer slots.

Marine carburetors used a similar set-up as they were not emission calibrated.  They also use very small idle tubes and generous idle fuel at the mixture screws.

It's remarkable how responsive Marine carburetors are if you test one.

If you look all the way back to early production Q-jets, you'll also notice that early units thru 1967 will also use less idle air and smaller idle tubes.......Cliff
