Im sure there is a way to fool the sensors, and I don't know all the intricacies of how lean burn works, but I am pretty sure that lean burn engages only when it does because its safe to do so.

In other words if you fool the sensors into putting the motor into lean burn mode when it normally would not, you could be damaging things.
