Lambda 1.392 = lean running. Post cat O2 sensor is simply reporting the lean running problem, it is not the cause. I'm surprised there aren't misfire and pre-cat mixture codes also. Post all of the...

Save your money. EKP's fail far more often than fuel pumps. Keep the old EKP in the trunk and install it if/when the replacement unit fails/overheats.

Yes, use an engine support bar to hold engine while you remove the sub frame. This is how you change the oil pan gasket also. Support car on jackstands using front jack pads.
