Maybe you could contact the company that sold you the SCT and see if they can tune the chip to help fix it. I know that on my X-Cal 2, I can change the lean/rich settings myself amongst many other parameters.

Cheers!

You say your running rich and you have a chip have you tried to have the settings in the chip changed , have you checked it with a scan tool to see what the trims are
