No, all kinds of bad things can happen, you could burn pistons and rings if it gets hot enough, keep in mind, rich is better than lean.

there is no Rich > Lean

its all about excess. if you are really lean, thats bad...if you are really rich, that can be bad too

if you are a little of either, then yes, a little rich is probably safer than being a little lean

this guy is getting an FMU, in reality i would imagine he doesnt care too much...or he woulde be picking a better option for fuel management

There is lots out there.

My site has a few write-ups as they pertain to TurboEdit.

Search for "Keebler65" in Google and he has some good stuff.

And finally a good read through the FAQ stickied at the top should start you off.
