at least get auto tap on it to see what your AF ratio is to determin if you really are running rich.

When you put your finger on it you're not at wide open throttle and thus you're operating in closed loop (if not, you'll have a check engine light.) When operating in closed loop your mixture is held at 14.7:1.
You have no idea if you're running lean or rich at WOT. You need to at least check the S1 O2 sensors at WOT with a diagnostic scanner to get an idea of your WOT mixture. Get autotap (it's software that is used with a laptop computer) or find someone who has it. Or, if you might talk someone with a Tech II (what your local GM dealer has) to take a ride with you.
