Tommyk, my info came from 3 hot rodding magazines and they all had similar numbers. Maybe I misread them or maybe they're wrong? I will post links. I know 14.7 is the magic number but all articles said that 12.5-13.0 was ideal for mild cam readings WOT and acceleration and 14.7 cruise. I trust this website over anything I read elsewhere which is why I ask

14.7/1 is only the magic number in a theoretical sense. Rich vs lean can only be viewed in the context of what a given engine needs /wants at a particular point of load and throttle opening.
