Jet needle height adjustment affects the flow, main jet restricts the amount. Bigger mains allow more fuel into the needle jet, smaller mains allow less. Higher needles allow more fuel flow, lower needles allow less. A low needle and a big main or a high needle and a small main work pretty much the same until you reach WOT. Such an easy concept, even a super tuner such as yourself should recognize this.
I can recognize how someone might think that until they tried it.
