My prelude is running very lean and I don't know what it could be any more. I have new O2 sensors, new map sensor, new cat, cleaned the egr and the intake manifold, new spark plugs, new park plug wires and did a compression test and they all good. I have a A/F gauge and it running almost all the way lean. When I drive it it struggles a little bit and the muffler makes a poping noise. I did the timing twice cause I was afraid it was off but it's good. I checked it with a timing light. I have no more idea what it is. The car start fine and everything is good but it's just way to lean to drive.

Lean fuel condition could be caused by one of the following below:

1. Vacuum leaks
2. EGR and PCV valve.
3. Low fuel pressure.
4. Dirty fuel injectors.
5. Mass Air Flow Sensor.
6. Oxygen Sensor.

I checked all of the listed and that's why I'm stumped. The only thing I can think of now is taking it to the shop. Anymore ideas why it's running so lean?
