 iF DOWN TO 054 PILL i WOULD SAY YOU NEED MAYBE .002 more nozzles. The reason pill so low is pressure needed to get enough fuel thru nozzle.Bigger nozzle will for same fuel less pressure. If me I would go .002 up on nozzles and maybe start with.010 bigger main jat. If you go on spuds site there is tuneup calculator that might give good idea as to how much change one will require of other.

That nozzle sounds way too small and with that small of a pill your pump is at max pressure !  An .035 or 37 nozzle might be more tunable for you ! My smallblock is 394 cubes and I use a .037 nozzle with a .088 main . My pump flows around 4.5 Gallons per minute .

Agree with Bill on nozzle size.I normLLY RUN .035 TO .037 AVERAGE ON ALL INJECTED MOTORS.  I try to keep main jet between 95 and 150 and as I said in first staement that is determined by the nozzle size. If I get to big of jet I just drop nozzles one size which leans motor requiring smaller main. Hopefully explained were can follow what I am saying .I tend to skip a step or two in explanations.
