Problem with LT1 O2 sensors

I just got my LT1 running and it fuel smokes badly. The scanner readings are Left bank 128 and the Right is 151. PCMforless told me that it has an exhaust leak causing the O2 sensor to send a lean condition to the computer. The computer then compensates and richens the mixture. I thought it was a bad sensor so I changed it out. Still the same readings. Even with them unplugged it still reads the same. How does the readings change with the sensors unplugged? I can't find a leak ahead of the O2 sensor but found a small one directly after it at the collector. What gives?

Well, a small exhaust leak on one bank only will reduce the volumetric efficency of that bank. That'll get you lopsided like that.

Re: Problem with LT1 O2 sensors

Why does it read the same when the sensor is unplugged? Does the computer not recognize the sensor?

Not sure about the LT1 PCMs, but if a new sensor resulted in no change, then I'd start looking at your wiring or your PCM.

Re: Problem with LT1 O2 sensors

this might be a case of the famous split BLM problem. I corrected it on my brother's car by slowly adjusting the base idle screw on the throttle body and watching the BLMs untill they were equal. The split BLM is caused by valve overlap on larger cams due to the short runner intake design.
