Well according to Ray, it might be as high as 5% rich, but with the t-3 
injectors it should be less. he suggested I first try dropping the fuel pressure 
1-2 psi, and if that didn't take care of it, turning the center screw of the MPS 
out1/5th of a turn (outward leans the mixture, while inward richens it up) 
and then road test it. It was running pretty damn good though, actually better 
than it had with the carbs, with excellent throttle response. I had asked him 
about using the CO dial on the brain, but he thought that was for idle only, 
while the MPS is for both idle and off idle.

As for pistons, I they were OE Kolbelschmit, and were used with their 
matching cylinders ( I try to keep them together like that), although they were used, 
the car didn't smoke except on start up after sitting overnight (valve 
guides?). The FI didn't change that either, as it smoked on start up from the get 
go. Heck, my Notch does that, and I don't know how many miles are on it. :O
