1999 Chevrolet Tahoe

I have a 1998 Chev Tahoe with a 5.7 Vortec. I just replaced the engine with a rebuilt long block that did include oil pan with new oil pump. I did use the upper and lower intake from my old engine. With the new engine I did put on new spark plugs, plug wires, thermostat and fuel regulator. I am now getting engine codes of P0171 and P0141. I have done the following trying to fix it.

THANKS FOR THE REPLY BUT I CAN NOT READ THE DIAONOTTIC PROCEDURES EVEN IF I CLICK ON THEM TO ENLARGE. HOW DO I MAKE THEM READABLE AND PRINT THEM? CAN YOU E-MAIL THEM DIRECTLY TO MEY E-MAIL ADDRESS? STRUXGL@FRONTIERNET. NET
I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT I DID ALSO PUT ON A NEW FUEL FILTER.

I DID GET A P0174 AND P0171 TO START WITH AND NOW IT IS P0171 AND P0141.
