Is the tuning guide that North Sails uses remain the same when using larger headsails? What kind of adjustments are needed?

Bruce,

I've asked a couple of sailmakers (Jay Lutz and Mark Ploch) the same question and both told me exactly the same thing: follow the tuning guide but set up your boat as if you were going to sail in heavy air even if its light. You need a tighter forestay because of the larger headsail. I've done it and it works.
