I was adjusting my TSP duals today, and after I started it up for a couple of minutes, some gas dripped out of one of the pipes. I ran open headers for a couple of days, and the car was running rich. Is that a reason why gas could be dripping out? The plug wires are brand new and I'm replacing the plugs on my next day off after I get these duals completely done. Thoughts?

As long as your engine has been broken in properly when it was new....you can run rich forever if you want to.

If it was a brand new engine, that has not been broken in yet, with no miles on it.....running that rich will literally ruin the way the new rings seat (cylinder washing) and you will burn a TON of oil for the life of the engine and never be able to seat the rings properly. It would need a rebuild.
