Default Fuel Pressure to hi?

Hello Gents, trying to solve a tune issue. I have extremely rich readings on my holley 770 street avenger. At WOT with the factory Jets it would drop down to 10.9 at WOT and cruising (around 12-13a/f). After dropping the jets to 70's I still get rich readings. but its a tad better... I am questing if my Mechanical fuel pump upgrade is creating high fuel pressure appose to it being a jetting issue. I went from the factory 40gph to a 110gph mechanical pump but I have no regulator. Is this most likely my issue? I am going to pick up a fuel gauge after work but I want to get some opinions on this.

6 to 8 psi is what I always went by for carbs. The GPH ratings sound like a lot without a regulator in line. You almost tripled the flow rate. I'd be curious what psi is when you check it. I'm guessing " excessive " lol.

Well this is my exact pump:

It says it does not require a regulator and only outputs at 6psi. Hrmmm Maby back to jetting...

Hmmm, maybe I've been away from carbs too long lol. I'm curious as to how it can flow that much more without an increase in pressure. Fuel line dia. being the same. Post back when you find out the psi. Good luck
