If you trust your self with a gauge that has about 90% error. I pulled that number out of my butt, but seriously it reads like 14-1.9 a/f and that is about it. So the answer is no.

ok so pretty much the only way to street tune is with a wide band

You are catching on.

Honestly don't even try it with a narrow band, you aren't doing yourself any good.

I tried doing it that way last fall and it just kept getting worse every time I burned a new chip. You really can't tell if you just a little lean or WAY to lean. I would find someone with a wideband or take it to a dyno.
