Generally the consensus with the 3rd needle is to just leave it be and adjust the high end followed by low as you normally would. Atleast that's how it worked for my VSpec. It's more than likely a middle end needle.

That 3rd needle is a spray bar needle. Like the previous poster said, you just leave that one alone.

Thats not exactly how it works. The spray bar adjustment must be made in conjunction with the low speed needle. It's there to change when the spray bar gets straight air flow over it.
