I would say left one in my book


Other one looks a lil too lean and may possibly had been burning coolant.

Left for sure. The one on the right was DEFINTALLY running too lean, causing hot exhaust gasses, causing the white chared look

Both ran like crap.

Right is too lean
Left is too rich.

ditto them ^

thing is...if i had a choice, i'd definitely prefer a bit rich...even though it fouls things up, it is less damaging than runnig seriously lean.

Lean can predetonate and do damage
Rich can clog a cat and kill it.

Both are bad...but yes..rich is probably the lesser damaging one.
