SOURCE: IAT sensor
The IAT (Intake Air Temperture) is the sensor that measures the temp of the incoming air to the engine, it is either in the rubber hose to the engine from the air filter housing, or on the air filter housing itself, it is small and round with 2 wires going to it, many times it is left unplugged during routine maintenance.

sounds like the IAT is disconnected, it is either in the flex hose from the air cleaner to the engine or in the air filter housing, on my GM product car it is in the air intake hose, it is small and has a 2 wire connector to it, just pushes and pulls in and out of the flexible air intake hose.

SOURCE: IAT and MAF info
I have the same "chip" (really just a resistor). It should be the wire harness that clips into the lower box of the intake. I believe it is a green and a black wire. Just unclip it and slide the end of the resistor into each wire prong. Then tape the heck out of it. I put a rubber cap over mine then electrical tape. Works like a charm

SOURCE: TOO LEAN CODES
yes very very common code for these motors i get them all the time. now the first thing i do is listen to the pcv valve for noise if it is rattling this is the problem and is the most common of all. another thing is the intakes leak from cracks in them but the only way to find it is with a smoke machine. now the one other thing i have seen before is debre like a leaf in the mass air flow sensor but you have replaced it so most likely no that.
do your self a favor and change the pcv valve it only cost under 5 dollars. if this is not it you will need to find the leak in and around the intake or a vacuum hose.
because you have two lean banks this mean if it is a leak then it has to be in common with both banks and that is the vacuum line system intake etc...
let mew know if you have any more question. good luck man
