What is super rich? I've yet to see anything other than lean.

How do your plugs look when you read them? How is your compression when you test it?

So i took the intake off to change my stock injectors to rx-8 injectors and noticed a good bit of oil in my intake. Tested my pcv valve by just blowing through it. Air passed freely on one side and the other side only slight restriction. So i picked up a pcv valve for a 1989 323 turbo.

But i've read that excessive oil in the intake can cause det. Maybe this is the cause.
