What was wrong with the door?

So lean burn might be a bust. I got it setup and the afr drops (goes up?)/goes leaner, but then it shoots right back to ~14.7. I was able to sustain a lean idle, but I had to give it gas and brought the rpms up to like 1500-2k. I think that it might be because I didn't try and adjust the circuit for idle and so it was setup to run at ~2k rpm. If I switch it back without moving my foot off the gas the rpms shoots up (of course). I might just need to play with it somemore .
At 55 mph, a 10% drag reduction translates to a 5% increase in fuel economy. At 70mph,a 10% drag reduction translates into a 6% increase -Phil Knox (Aerohead), Aerodynamics Seminar #2
