Yep, that is one of the requirements as well as converting to Speed Density if you have an 85-89 TPI setup.

My engine was stuck in limp home mode due to outdated software for my programmer, that is why it was so rich.

Didn't dyno the car but it ran a 14.1@99mph in limp home mode. Car weighed 3380, 3520 with me in it, not bad for an LG4 with a TPI and Cam installed and in Limp Home mode.
