I have I/H/E REFLASH and my car is running extremely rich. so rich that it sucks out my gas like crazy. and it smells like pure gasoline is leaking out my exhaust. my buddy was driving behind me and said it was really really bad. and to me its been getting noticably worse especially when i get on it. my question is since there is no tuning solution for this. how do i fix it??

The removal of the race header will tend to do that...

Just out of curiosity, has your car always ran rich with your setup?

Thanks man. I was just wondering because I have a I/E and will soon have the strup header and was just wondering if I would run into this problem down the line.

E-Manage Ultimate or an AEM FI/C Piggy back unit will give you the ability to lean out the fuel mixture if its running too rich, but with a catless race header you will always smell exhaust.

its more fuel now than exhaust smell... even from the engine when i rev it seems to just pour out
Gas just dosnt " pour out " other wise your car would have cylinders being washed out. What you need to do is install a wideband air/fuel ratio gauge and monitor your WOT air/fuel Ratios and report back to us / me otherwise theres not much you can do to determine how rich you are really running.
