What indicates that it is running rich? Fumes? Spark plugs? The way it runs?
Mine made terrible fumes and stumbled off of idle. After checking the obvious (timing, idle setting, TPS) it turned out to be a C&L mass air sensor that worked like garbage. I installed the stock MAF and it runs great. Fumes are gone too.
Frustrating until you get it sorted out and then tons of fun once it is sorted out.
Jim, it will run rich on initial start up. Leave the computer powered and after several times up to temp it will be OK. Just don't disconnect the puter or it will have to learn all over again. Also, check your TPS.
