Hey guys if anyone has suggestions, she and I are all ears.
Tiffany brought the car to me two weeks ago on Monday, it had no stored codes at that point, and after 12-15 mins of driving with fuel trims in the -2 to -4 range all over I decided that it *MUST* be intermittent as there was no issue at all with the car at that point.
Now, there are only a coupe scenario's for a too rich code that I know of. This code is set when the fuel trimming system can no longer take away enough fuel to maintain stoich. That is over 50%!! First things would normally be a hanging injector, but since she has had codes on BOTH banks, it's unlikely that an injector from each side would stick. Another possibility is a clogged regulator, or something similar that would cause a LARGE rise in fuel pressure. That's all I have thoug.
Any ideas anyone?

Since it seems to be a common problem... try testing the fuel pressure regulator.... it could have a ruptured diaphram... unplugged vacuum line... etc, what about the spark plug condition? does it feel like it has a misfire? you could check and see if any wires are burned, plugs fouled.... etc... it could be a bad MAF not just dirty that's not sensing all of the air in the system...
what type of o2 sensor did you put in? the OEM works best from experience, it might be biased rich or seeing a false rich condition... Frost if you have a shop do you have a 4- or 5-gas analyzer to see if it actually IS a rich condition??
what % is Short Term Fuel Trim(STFT) and Long Term Fuel Trim(LTFT) at?

It's very intermittent. She brought the car by and when out cruising, trims were nice and tight; -4 to -2 through most of the range, never positive, and never further out than -6.
The MAF is fine; logging freq shows all is well, but so does the tight trimming.
The regulator doesn't have a diaphragm, it's like a plastic disc with a spring over a hole. Even if it did, you should expect a drop as it moves thru to the exit/return.
It was not misfiring or missing at all.
For a week or more at a time, all is fine, then one day she gets codes, but says it feels no different.
Her O2s are very new and switch very well, right at 14.7 on my wideband.
Hey Tiffany, here's a question, do you just get the code on very cold days? I wonder if the O2s have a hard time getting up to temp in those stainless steel headers... If so, your car is tuned so close that closed loop operation could be delayed a bit. That table is engine temp vs. IAT.

did you guys log it through a bunch of different conditions hitting as many trim cells as possible? It makes sense that it's taking a specific condition. An example would be my buddies vette, it was fine everywhere except very light cruising throttle such as through a neighborhood at 20-25 mph just keeping the car at speed. He was throwing rich codes. I leaned him out in that specific area and he was good to go. That was back in the LS1edit days. I would do a log hitting as many load ranges as possible and see what it looks like. What does the idle look like afr wise cold and hot?

The only thing I know of that could cause this, honestly, would be a sharp upturn in fuel pressure, but that doesn't make much sense.

If not most aftermarket O2s are shit. ]

the reasoning for Bosch rear vette O2s is that with long tubes, lots of exhaust heat is lost and it makes factory O2s VERY VERY LAZY. This is especially true if the headers are stainless. The Vette O2s have about 15 watts more of heater so they dont act as lazy.
I can show you comparative logs of idle and light cruise between the two of them if you think I'm wrong, and the logs are the bottom line.

I don't think O2's are at the root of this problem. It would be much more consistent if they were. Plus I've been running lazy O2's for a couple years now and get a heater code on a regular basis but have zero fueling issues. I have bosch 13111's ( vette rear) sensors in the garage waiting to go in this spring when I go back to mafcl. The bottom line is you'll have to get a log of the car when it's actually going rich to see what's going on. I would wonder if you have an injector sticking. Have you run injector cleaner through it or anything like that?
