  • Mild Tune Available?

    I have an LS2 V with a Magnaflow exhaust and I just installed the Lingenfelter high performance air intake system. After installation my Long Term fuel trims went from B1: 8-10%, B2: 7-9% to B1 and B2: 19-24%. Also P0171 and P0174 are setting at times since my fuel trims are maxed out. Seems to happen mostly at hot idle. I have rechecked my installation for leaks, intake and exhaust for leaks, no oil leaks so everything seems solid. My question is does Lingenfelter sell a mild tune to bump up the fuel delivery, or would I need to have it sent out and tuned? Also would a set of larger fuel injectors solve this issue?

    P0171 and P0174 are bank 1 and bank 2 lean codes. Here are some of the possible causes and solutions:

    Causes

    A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    •The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty
    Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
    •There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor
    •Possible cracked vacuum or PCV line/connection
    •Faulty or stuck open PCV valve
    •Failed or faulty oxygen sensor (bank 1, sensor 1)
    •Sticking/plugged or failed fuel injector
    •Low fuel pressure (possible plugged/dirty fuel filter!)
    •Exhaust leak between engine and first oxygen sensor

    Possible Solutions

    A lot of times, cleaning the MAF sensor and finding/fixing vacuum leaks fix the problem. If you're on a tight budget, start there, but that may not be the fix for certain. So, possible solutions include:
    •Clean the MAF sensor. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
    •Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace/repair as required
    •Inspect all hoses and connections in the air intake system
    •Inspect and/or test the intake manifold gaskets for leakage
    •Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure
    •Ideally you'll want to monitor short and long term fuel trims using an advanced scan tool
    •If you have access, you may want to run a smoke test



    Also, make sure that you installed the MAF in the correct direction (if it is flowing backwards it could set these as well). As for a calibration goes, we do offer tuning but it is not likely your solution to this issue.
