The fuel mix is computer controlled, so not adjustable by normal means, it does sound like the engine can't breath, an exhaust system pressure test can tell of there is a restriction, an exhaust shop can do the test or you can purchase a test kit from most parts stores and do it your self if your a DYI type. If they are melted down then there may be other problems that will require further diagnostic testing.
