    Sorry but I have no idea what a "normal setup" actually is.

    From what you've written, the only reason you'd be running rich is the BOV, but that'd be only between shifts. Also from what you've written, you have no means whatsoever of knowing you're running rich, making the entire point a bit moot. And, from what you've written, you don't need engine management, as you shouldn't be running rich anyway (except between shifts)... so... I've lost the plot, sorry.

    Are you actually running rich?

    How do you know?

    What are the actual mods on the car?

    Would you like suggestions on how to not run rich, or are you OK with the AP?

    Usually if you're running rich your exhaust blows black smoke. Is your car doing this?
