Default What's the ideal fuel/air ratio in a TDI?

After my last dyno Jeff looked at the fuel/air graph and said I needed more fuel. I went from PP520s to PP502s and gained significant power. Here's the boost and fuel air table:

The blue line is with the bigger nozzles. As you can see the ratio has dropped throughout the rev range, but it makes me wonder: what's ideal? The car smokes, not a lot, but it's visible at low revs under high load. Can't see it at high revs. But there's got to be a formula for this.
