Default O2 Sensor Help with HP Tuners!

Alright guys well i have been having a problem with my bank 2 sensor 1 O2 sensor. At WOT bank 1 reads 851, and bank 2 reads 56.... im pretty sure this is causing my car to knock on hard pulls... We have been reading all of this on HPTuners also... Any ideas?!

At wot you cannot use your narrowband sensors as an accurate reference really. But it does sound like you are way off on one side or the other. The problem is, its hard to tell which one is off unless you use a wideband to check each bank.

Are your O2s OK at idle? Or is one going high and the other low?

Well, it could be that bank 2 is lean due to your tuning to compensate, or it could be that bank 1 is rich due to your tuning as well. Whenever I have this problem, I usually check spark plugs, then rockers, then wire, then coil packs then exhaust. A good sized exhaust leak can cause this to be off as well, but remember, when you go WOT, the O2 sensors have NO input. They are just a reference then. You are running off of MAF, VE, PE or a combo of those 3.

Doesnt appear to be ONLY when it wigs out. That happens over the entire run. Unplug the sensor and see what it does.....They are not used at WOT anyway.

Ok, then I would replace both it and look at your tune again. Something like that can cause all sorts of issues that will affect both sides of the engine.

I can see if they will replace them under warranty at my work but they are barely a year old and bank 2 was already replaced.... Lol

well then there is possibly something else wrong. if the O2s were bad, then they can mess up plugs too. With a good set of plugs and O2s, there should be a very very very minimal different in the ltfts while driving. If they are opposite, there is a problem, and if they are way off, there is a problem too.
