Just for the record, could you tell us what symptoms
comprise your "running
VERY rich when warm" condition. Black exhaust smoke? Fuel
consumption= ?

My car, since the Hoppen/Anderson chipping, has somewhat
blackened exhaust tips (which I think may have predated the
upgrade), but the computer and actually measured MPG remains
within 1 or 2 mpg of previous values. which for highway
cruising is 26-28.
