Burning Rich - Black soot coming out tailpipe
The engine is buringing so rich that soot comes out tailpipe and leaves a black soot mark on garage floor. The soot is easily wiped away like black powder. My engine is LT1, stroked to 383 w/ powerdyne supercharger.
Whats weird is that i started engine up the other day and soot no longer came out the tailpipe. I shut engine down restarted and here comes the soot. The soot coming out the tailpipe has been with me for quite a while but doesn't appear to effect the performance. What can I do to eliminate the problem and what are consequences if I keep driving the car with engine like this. At night if I start racing around and pull over quickly I can see the headers glowing (red, red) through the header wrap.....
