C/S CEL on dash intermittently, Happens under boost. Check CEL's and advise

Technician Notes

It is advised to replace wastegate vacuum lines although there are no codes currently. There are codes for o2 sensor signal post cat and a too rich at cruise code. Possible failed injector leaking too much fuel causing this code or the o2 sensor itself is dying. Pulled plugs to see that cylinder 3 injector is sticking causing over fueling which explains the code. It is advised to replace bank 1 injectors and test drive vehicle to monitor o2s after repair.
