Fueling is important and can help to control engine temps. Too hot? Try adding some fuel. Many say that 12.5:1 is pretty close to ideal for power production, and is a little "safer" than a 13:1 ratio in terms of controlling combustion temps and therefore avoiding burned pistons.
The other key to a safe tune is ignition timing. Don't get greedy with timing. Find your timing for power then back off a couple degrees. Leaving a few HP behind is cheap compared to what can happen if you get greedy and get detonation.
