I am also in the East Bay, in the Oakland area. Everything back to stock in the motor except the tube that runs from maf to the throttle intake. Is is a blue bimmerworld replacement one vs stock black. Just seems dumb to spend money replacing it since there is no such thing as a carb legal Hose for there. If it was black he would have ignored it. If you could email me the info that would be great matt hey 2007 at gmail (no spaces). Thanks!

Having those LTFTs would really help identify if there is a lean condition.

I'm thinking fuel delivery. Fuel filter, recently replaced?

Measured fuel pressure? Should be about 51psi +/- 2.9psi per Bentley manual.

What about injectors? There are a number of DIY FI kits which replace the filter and pintle caps. At 213K the injectors are probably due for servicing anyway.
