If it is a jet, it should have a small hole in the center of it, tap the end of the jet with a hammer and punch lightly to loosen it and then try using an easy out to remove it..................

Thanks Willy,
Was able to get it out finally with an easy out and some heat from a soldering gun. What a PITA!

yep...I have found the jets are really soft and "hand tight" can even be too much! I have broke a few trying to change them on the Fiancées Raptor. This is one reason I am so pleased to have EFI on mine.
