I must agree with the above poster....loss of power at WOT is most like a lean condition. It will still run under a rich condition at WOT. It will just blow black sooty smoke. If it leans out the engine will start to get excessively hot and the rpms will back off. Not so much with a rich condition. A rich condition will waste fuel and end up with a cooler combustion chamber. It will also eventually cause upper cylinder wear because the fuel will at some point wash the lube off of the cylinder walls...but as a rule you may see less than spectacular performance but usually a longer engine life.
This ain't rocket science boys!!!
