My old 302 made 305rwhp and we had the pressure set at 48 psi.. my mass air meter was on the lean side.

What are the problems you normally have when you are lean?


Could it possibly cause your power to level off in the upper rpms?

you want to run as lean as possible w/o damaging your engine (detonation). i believe this gives you the max HP. Personally, I'd rather error on the side of being rich. You may lose a few horses and burn a little more gas, but you're less likely to blow a HG or damage a cylinder.

so if it was to lean it would detonate for sure??

I pulled a couple plugs and they are white like the day I put them in, but I get no detonation.
