Runnin toooo rich?

I just noticed after i got an exhaust system into my car.. non-cat back.. just performance muffler, that my car is runnin a biiittt too rich at times like this when gas prices are sky rocketing!!!!..

Anyway to DIY fuel management? lol.. would it be good to reset the computer since some people told me it's better too whenever i put in any performance parts or whatever?? i have an intake and exhaust in my car after i got a motor swap for a JDM ZC... or would it be better if i just put the stock intake back on??

lemme guess.... he smells gas in his exhaust hahaha that's what most ppl say

I smell raw fuel from my car, yet I get 41 mpg (imperial) or 34 mpg (US measure) (6.88 liters per 100 kms)

its probably b/c your driving more aggressive b/c you like the sound of your muffler. I don't see how putting a muffler on can cause your car to run rich.

You would have a high HC reading when doing the e-test.
