I believe the part numbers where listed by Dino in one of my posts. I have a .004 shim in mine right now and the hotest I have seen it is around 200 degrees. I'm running an Enya #3 and Cool Power 20% on an MP-5 pipe. Got the main needle just under 2.5 turns and the low needle about 1/8th turn richer than flush. Its been running fantastic during my last few flying sessions!

There are two shims available, a .004 and a .008 . I'd start with the .004, see how it runs and go from there. Replace it with the .008 if you need more. I'm sure this will help your situation.
