You should be able to get this info from a service manual. How do you know you're running lean? The computer controls how much fuel is injected into the cylinders, there are other things such as a bad thermostat that can make the computer change the air/fuel mixture causing rich or lean conditions.

What code(s)? Codes are not always directly related to the root cause, they can be of the symptoms also.

Thats the code that started everything. It would go into limp mode. I replaced the turbo intake and the vaule cover and it was still running lean after just no codes now

Do you have a code for a lean condition, such as P0171-P0172?

I'm sorry, but you are being really vague. You're making us play 20 questions and feeding us bits and pieces. No codes, so how do you know it's running lean? "Started everything" inferring there is a lot more you aren't stating. Please take a few minutes and write what started, what was done, all the codes you had, how many miles, what year, is this the 138hp engine, or the 153, etc. Please, give us a complete picture.

Sorry not trying to be vague i was meaning that the p0299 code for the underboost turbo is the first thing that pop up and. And with by running lean it was in the fuel curve on the code checker it was a 10.2 and it is not throwing a code now at all. I also just went on and took it to my buddy's shop to let him work on it. Thanks for the help just didnt have the time to keep fooling with it
