I'm still adjusting the WUR and RPM solenoid. In the 14's, i am getting lots of burping on deceleration, which I guess I am to expect with this car... Is 14.7 the absolute leanest it should be at cruise or is it the average with a +- of 3?
Some would say that factory EFI cars cruise leaner than 14.7, but it's not something I would look to do.

The popping on decel is a 930 thing that I don't believe you can get rid of with CIS. An EFI car does not have the popping(If it is setup properly). When you back out of the throttle, you cut off the air and you should see your AFR dive down towards 9 or 10 when it's popping. The way EFI takes care of this is that it cuts the fuel to the injectors and they actually go lean on throttle over run.
