What will running rich do to a car's performance? Right now I am at 10 psi now one TurboTweak street chip because I just got it running good and the car will pull like a freight train until full boost is reached then the motor changes note a little and will keep pulling but seems to die down a little, no knock whatsoever, and I DO have correct preload this time.

Will being rich do this, I am ordering some good charge pipe hoses because I used crap home improvement hoses for mockup and startup so I dont want to boost that much with these POS on here.

Are you running a data logger or scanmaster? Running rich on top end and it'll fall on it's face.

as you turn the boost up, it will run leaner. Running rich will kill the power as the combustion process will not generate as much heat as a leaner one.

Of course, when things get too lean, things start to break :)

Get a WB, so you can see what's really going on.
