Tuning running lean FIXED!!!

I am having a problem tuning my car. When I datalog it my STFT are perfect on passenger side na nk 1 and on bank 2 it is differentiated lean by 10pts. I checked for exhaust leaks and smoked for vacuum leaks seams like 100 times. Has me thinking that maybe the way I have my fuel lines plumbed that the fuel rail pressure sensor is not getting a correct reading because it is before the the bank 2 driver side rail is being fed. I had injectors flow matched and also swapped them side to side with no change. I also swapped o2 sensors side to side with no change. Sometimes When I do a idle log the tune is spot on from bank to bank then if I shut the car off and start a new log 10min later the tune is off again.. WTF. I have Edelbrock fuel tails with Vic Jr intake

So fuel is fed from
factory line with regulator in to
8an on the p/s rear fuel rail out to
p/s front rail
crossover to
Fuel rail pressure sensor on d/s front rail
Then it feeds rest of d/s rail

If the fuel rails aren't tied together front and rear it's possible that a cylinder or two could be running lean.
I have my fuel system plumbed like the top view where both rails are tied together at the front and back.



Lean bank doesn't necessarily mean less gas is getting into those cylinders it could mean:
1. That bank is getting "more" air than the opposite bank...
2. The opposite bank is getting "less" air than the "lean" bank.
3. etc..

I had a friend poke around with MAPP gas and found a vacuum leak at the rear of intake plenum. Took the gasket out and just RTV it and short term fuel trims are perfect 1.00. Mapp has definitely best way to find vacuum leak. Leak was small so brake cleaner or starting fluid wasn’t working
