Default Snorkle & carb. Issues

Okay I installed a Triangle boys snorkle kit on my 2002 foreman 450. It idles like if it was brand new, but when I go to give it trottle it bogs down. I put tape over the snorkle and cut out a square about 1" by "1 and it would run fine. This cant be normal after the snorkle kit is nade for this bike. I also had a lot of fule draining down my overflow line. I have taken the carb off and I am Going to do a lemon Juice cleaning. My question is why is the bike sucking so much air and what can I do to fix it? If I hold the trottle wide open it sounds like when you max out on RPM's. I am trying to get the bike ready for mud nationals in Jacksonville Texas at the end of March. Any help will be appreciated.

ill bet that you need to go up a main jet or two because its starving for fuel ..(lean)
a wheeler with a snorkle will sound like a freaight train because its at ear level

What kind of jet kit do I need. Where can I find one? Are they hard to installed?

with the triangle i think you have to move the clip on the needle all the way down (raising the needle) and sand the top of the needle off and add a washer.
