lol. BaNK one is always to the left when looking at the pulley's of a vehicle. meaning bank one is on the passenger side of a g35. any other questions feel free to ask.
As for code P0171 best way is to use a scan tool. u need to differentiate if both banks fuel trim are out or just the one side. Both sides possibly MAF or rip in intake housing. One side possible 02, again needs to be check with scan tool but could start with front O2 on the proper side of course.
