It really works, since for a couple of months before the
recent K24/chip upgrade I was running 11 psi and the gauge
said perdominately lean all the time. When we took off the
head 2 wks ago, we saw that it was right, it had been lean.

No, I don't think that is it.

With the heater fan on, and running the engine at all 
different revs, the meter shows a "leaner than it was 
before" number.

In fact, on the WOT with heater fan off I get 9/10 lights
yup, open loop enriched. But with the heater fan on, and 
I hit the WOT, only 4-5/10 lights (barely stoich).
