We present some new results regarding simulations of finite density QCD based on a canonical approach. A previous study has shown that such simulations are feasible, at least on small lattices. In the current study, we investigate some of the issues left open: we study the errors introduced by our approximation of the action and we show how to tune it to reduce the cost of the simulations while keeping the errors under control. To further reduce the cost of the simulations, we check the reliability of reweighting method with respect to the baryon number. Finally, using these optimizations, we carry out the simulations at larger densities than in our previous study to look for signals of a phase transition.
