Thats a Bit on the Lean side... But not all that bad..

The pic makes it look white.... Was it more along the lines of a light cream color?

That would indicate you running lean... May have been a fuel pressure issue, MAF issue or simply a bad O2... Could be a number of things causing that... But see how it does with the new sensor
