      Haven’t started it since i figured this out. Not trying to wash the rings out. I’m headed to the shop now with the programmer in hand. Gonna see if they can adjust the fueling and also their input on it.

      Going for an axle tomorrow. I hope.

      Went by Friday, tune wasn't ready. I dropped it off last Tuesday. apparently the guy who does the tuning and such has an infection in his leg and went home Tuesday morning? Never heard back on Wed or Thursday, stopped by Friday after work, still nada.

      No call today either. Going up there tomorrow after work.

      It sucks, but hey, if the guy isn't at work because of health issues, whatever. I haven't driven the truck in over a year, another week or two isn't gonna matter.

      I just read this. you are seeing lean codes due to unburnt fuel in the exhaust. The earlier assessment that the tuner needs to scale the injector or 65 psi returnees fuel system is correct. When the tuner gets back, he could just work on the maf transfer function to fix this, but then there will still be other nagging tuning issues.

      Make sure the guy tuning is reminded he is working with a 65psi fuel system, not 40.

      All right so i went up there and talked to him and they looked at it. #3 injector is not firing. TO replace it I have to remove the intake which i didn’t want to do. Since i have to now, I’ll downsize to 17 or 19# if i can find a set for cheap.

      Will update when i have something to report.

      Do you think its the injector, or the connector?
      Great to hear you found the issue.

      When i pull the upper intake I’m going to disable the fuel pump relay, unplug the ignition coils, and turn it over with a noid light plugged in to see if it’s shooting the pulses.

      At least it’s something to chase down.
