Default Critique my tune

I recently got my megasquirt working and have had the chance to do some tuning with megatune (I know, I should use tunerstudio, but my laptop refuses to run tunerstudio and blue screens every time I try). I use megalogviewer's VE analyze tool to tune.

Car is a NA '96 with an AEM UEGO wideband, MS1 3.0

That being said, Im running pretty well I think. The car idles well and I pretty consistently run 14.7:1 under load and at idle. Cruising AFRs are around 15.5-16. It runs pretty well, but I am always wondering if it could run better.

Im using a 96-97 base map that I found somewhere on these forums or DIYautotune's site. The only thing that seems a bit weird to me is my VE map. You gentlemen seem to have a keen eye in spotting errors, and areas that need improvement.

Here is the car in question:

14:1 and 15:1 AFRs at full load are the fast lane on the burnt piston highway.

You're running naturally aspirated?

I see. I should be running more rich, correct? Around 13:1?

Where are you finding Braineack's tables to follow? Do you know the car specifics that table is for?
