What should the ltft % be on a pretty basic 402 be, mine are reading around 14.5 % at idle but when the engine heats up the car doesnt want to fire like its getting to much fuel at start up, so what I have to do to get it to crank is hold the throttle open a little bit to get it to fire, if I dont it will barely run at 200 rpm or so and fluxuates up and down for a few seconds before smoothing out. had my computer tuned by howell engines and the guy that tuned it has no idea of what it could be. im only getting around 200 miles on a tank of fuel and it smells real fumey at idle. any help would be great.

you really should put a wideband on it to see what the fueling is at idle. What mods do you have and size of cam? I've never heard of howell engines so I can't comment on them but are they experienced with tuning these cars? The fact you can keep it running by cracking the throttle open makes me think it's a tuning issue.

if they aren't experienced with ls1 cars I would be leary about having them tune your car. It sounds like an airflow issue to me.
