I had misfires quite a bit asociated with maxed out trims, fuel pressure diving exspeacialy when I went to RB's. Installed new O2's and codes went away. After that I installed the cobb AP with BMS backend flash wich really smoothed out things. But the culprit for my fuel mixture codes where the O2's (primary).

I see. Hopefully the o2s aren't too painful to replace.

30 min job tops! rememer to not twist the wires when installing them.

1. Remove engine cover
2. remove/unplug both connectors (black wired O2 goes to front Dp, Grey goes to rear Dp)
3.free both wires from clips around valve cover
4. take belly pan off
5. undo both sterring rack bolts and move seering rack out of the way
6. remove 02 sensors and reverse steps.

Thanks for the step by step but is there any special tools that you would recommend for the job? Did you use any reverse torx sockets or o2 socket wrench stubby wrench etc. I know i've been asking a lot of questions but I would just like to have everything I need instead of making runs back and forth to the store.

22mm flare nut-wrench is my go-to tool for the O2 sensors. Also, E12 socket for the steering rack.

This is mine, did a RB turbo install with it and over 10 dp installs...makes it so easy LOL!! Cut off the end with a dremel so you can get clearance and still have leverage.

I replaced my primaries and this didnt fix the problem, but it did get rid of the lambda sensor codes.

Well they did a couple of things. They cleaned the intake valves (walnut blasting), and replaced a seal on the turbo pipe. Neither one corrected the problem. They finally replaced all six injectors. That is what I'm testing now. Thus far the code has not come back. need to drive more to be certain.

Have about two week on the new injectors and code has not return. So my problem appear to have been the injectors.
