Default Lean condition. How much longer?

can I run before anything goes ka-boom? I wont be able to get going on this car until next week, but I have to still have to drive this car to and from work which is 20 miles per day.. I have to replace the super charger gasket and maybe the gaskets between the heads and the lower intake (what ever thet are called) also I have to seal the snout and the turbine plate.

You can run for a long time if you don't drive with a lead foot. Take it easy until you can fix the problem.

The gaskets you're referring to are the LIM (lower intake manifold) gaskets.

I had to try out a GTO today. I was able to keep with with him for 40'. . any how. I hope this will fix my problem. I used carb cleaner to spray around the supercharger snout and the idle rose a bit so its around there.
