Sit tight until you get the gauge to check the control pressures. You at one point mentioned fuel smell....could be the result of raw unburned gas escaping the exhaust, or as RarlyL8 metiioned you may have a ruptured diaphram in the WUR. There should be a vent line that goes from the WUR to the airbox for just that purpose (to vent to atmosphere so the diaphram works correctly, and in the event of a rupture to vent the escaping gas to some place safe). Certainly your plugs may now be fouled from the rich running - whatever the cause - but cease and desist on spending any more time and $$ until you've checked the pressures.
Damn these cars, don't you just love 'em? If all else fails and your mood is about to go postal, just get the wife to crank on things and you'll feel better.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
