Appreciate the Views

Thanks for the comments and information. My experience has only been with carbureted motors [small block Chevy], old ones at that! If we ran lean on the track/course we would run the risk of burning valves and see engine oil temps skyrocket. The rule was when in doubt go rich. We indeed paid close attention to the AFR for endurance racing.

But this is strictly empirical and anecdotal; so I appreciate the education. Even at this "late date"!
