Running Lean

Hey guys, I need some help. I just recently got a project Mustang for something to putz around with. It has had the 4.3 conversion done to it very recently, but it wasn't completely finished. The engine was all built and put in and seems to be working fine, but they guy that did it before me hadn't reprogrammed the computer at all. In addition to this, he also threw on a CAI without doing a tune. Well, as a result, the car is running lean right now. Is there a quick, easy and inexpensive way to give it more fuel? I'd like to keep the CAI on it, because it would be better for the vehicle than a stock intake. Is there a cheater way to get around going and paying to get the computer tuned? If not then that's what I'll do, but I'd like to be able to just do it by myself. Thanks guys!

I wouldn't mess with trying to do your own tunes.. Take it to a good tuner.

Yeah, that's what I might just do. I heard that maybe doing the old "unplug the battery for 20 minutes" might do it some good. Does this have any merit?

That may help some, but if you want to take full advantage of you're engine you should get a tune.
