For what level of boost... & it would still be a wild guess...

By ear? That's for idle only.

Bit of a risk setting up the boost, maybe try the old large main jet route but bear in mind it overfuels like crazy with normal driving.

That's what I got at the moment a big main and it's drinking fuel like a 3ltr
Idle is up about 2k and sometimes I doesnt idle when it's hot it's poping shots out the back
I'm running about 18psi I just want it to fuel for the boost and not all the time

For starters you want to loose the big main jet as this will be one of the reasons why your using alot of fuel.
Do you know what size venturi you have in the carb? Also what spec is your engine?

I dleally the only only way to set uo the carb is by using an AFR gauge but can give you a very rough guide as to what carb could be set to. If you don;t mind driving to someone i could check fueling for you on my AFR gauge and see what needs doing.
Its also sounds like your carb has other issues if its not idling right

At the time I just wanted to run high boost and wasn't to worried about it overfueling off boost but now I need it set up properly with the fuel price and all
If I was to drive to you mate it would be a 280mile round trip
Engine spec is pretty much standard no cam or anything of that nature just a t25
 Do I need the second stage drilling and so on

With the T25 on there yes i recon you'll need to drill the 2nd stage alittle bit, prob not too much but will need doing
