2006 Mustang GT fuel mixture too rich

I have a 91 Octane Predator performance tune installed. It is the correct one for my CAI and everything has been working great for a few months now. All of a sudden I have been receiving trouble codes indicating that the fuel mixture is too rich, (P0172 & P0175). Could this be a result of the outside temperature? It has been around 30 to 35 degrees Fahrenheit most days lately. Perhaps the mixture is too rich when it starts and runs cold for a bit?

What are the dangers in running with a fuel mixture that is too rich? Can this damage my engine? What can I do to remedy this situation without reverting back to the stock tune?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Too rich can be bad for your cats. You can adjust fuel but only at WOT. You may need to have your tune adjusted.
