Not to mention how tight it gets under there...
I've heard (not sure) that a good y-pipe can be as effective at reducing back pressure when done well.

Just a thought. Keep up the great work!

Just a little update on things...
I fixed the issue with bank 1 running lean. The O2 sensor was bad, so replacing that and taking it for a drive brought the long term fuel trims back within normal limits. Sadly, the car has three other issues that I'm dealing with. I have an irregular idle while I am coming to a stop after taking the car out of gear. The RPMs jump from 600 to 850, back and forth between the two until I come to a full stop. I think it might be the crank position sensor, but I could be wrong. On another forum, someone suggested checking my coolant, because low coolant could cause the throttle body to stick. After checking it, it turns out it is low, and it has gotten really chunky. So I'll be doing a flush soon to see if that improves anything. My last problem is my brakes. For some reason they wont activate until the pedal has gone almost all the way down, at which point they lock up completely. I've checked the brake booster, the booster check valve, and I checked for a vacuum leak; everything is fine. I notice that the brake pads are almost toast, so I got a kit with new calipers to jazz things up a bit. If that doesn't fix the braking issue, I think my problem may be the master cylinder. Will post pictures of my progress once I get the parts.

If the idle and brake issue are linked it would point towards a vacuum issue. Though the idle issue could also be the IAC valve. What color is your brake fluid? If dark and nasty time to flush it out. The brakes may be the master, but could also be related to the worn down pads.

i'm just guessing but the brakes could have be glazed from excessive use or riding the brakes. you might look at getting the rotors turned and new pads that will give you a new surface on the rotor for braking

Yeah, the brake kit I'm getting has new calipers, rotors, and pads. Going to flush the lines too, the brake fluid is a little darker than normal. For the IAC valve, I already replaced that and the MAF, so I know the idle issue is not due to either of those. I made a smoke machine to test for vacuum leaks, but did not find any leaks. If coolant and they crank sensor don't fix the issue, I may put the old alternator back on and remove the big 3 upgrade I did, because I did not have that problem before those mods.

bad ground could cause weird things to happen. you may try sanding the ground point of paint and dirt to make it have a good connection

New parts can still be faulty. Keep that in mind. Working at AZ, you have no idea how many people would insist that a brand new part wasn't the issue, only to find out it was after throwing hundreds of dollars at it on other parts.

Are the rpms actually jumping or are you referring to what the tach says? Cause that does sound like an IAC issue. Other things that could be linked would be carbon buildup in the IAC passages or EGR. I could be a little off base here.

My 93 cavalier did that wildly. I never could figure out what it was. Took a sledge hammer to it.
Have you ever heard of power stop brakes? They have em at rock auto. I put a kit on my cavy, which had notoriously terrible brakes and they worked AWESOME! They even have a little brake in procedure on the box. I used that procedure on other brakes and it worked well also...
Sounds like you're all over it though. Keep up the great work!
