We are at a great dis advantage as we cannot see or test the vehicle.
171 is a lean code. Possible issues are pcv, low fuel pressure, whether you replaced pump or not, map sensor, vacuum leaks or low compression.

As far as the injectors, did you have them professionally cleaned or additive? Additive never work. There is issues with the fuel rails on these loading up with debris and fouling injectors. They need to be cleaned professionally, and the rail removed and cleaned out

I had fuel injectors cleaned at Jiffy Lube, does that clear out fuel rails? Car MD states wiring harness needs to be replaced where O2 sensor was changed.
Attached are the diagnostics by mitsubishi and other auto shops.
