Question 1992 WAAYYYY rich....help!

My fox is so rich I can smell the fuel at stop signs.... ive got a few mods; 70mm throttle body (& MAF to match), mild cam (e303), and no cats. Any suggestions??

symptoms:
-very rich
-doesn't like to idle


Secondarily: I'm having a small overheating issue that I think is seperate. I've got a brand new fan & clutch attached to a nice alum. radiator.

-Overheats at LONG stop lights
-some kind of metallic flakes in coolant. (NOT rust, they are shiny and VERY small.)

Have you checked the fuel pressure? The fuel pressure regulator could be defective. Maybe someone put stop leak in the cooling system.
