Running Rich

Hey my EL Falcon is running really rich, I think it may be the chip however i'll probably need to clean injectors as this would usually fix the prob.

Can any one tell me which spark plug type and gap will be better for my car as the engine is burning hotter and using a bit more fuel. Also putting in wade cam next week so want to make it run well. Will this stop the car running rich??

Any ideas??

Current Mod's: -

Custom Grind Wade Cam (Stage 4)
Genie Extractors
2.5'' Mandrel bent exhaust,
Red Back Muffler
Hi-Flo Cat,
Powerchip 98Ron (custom)
T5 Manual Conversion
17'' Amg Quakes
Pedders Ultra Low Suspension
Monroe GT Gas Reflex Shocks
SS Induction
K and N Filter
Pioneer Stereo
Internal Lighting etc

More to come

Re: Running Rich

Don't froget to check the vacuum hose for the map sensor. Mine was split and caused my car to run really rich.
