    NEW GUYS! If you get an unexpected CEL turn it off and check those codes immediately

    I know its probably in the FAQ and the official timing chain thread but I feel like newer member dont seem to get the memo on this and that sucks because it'll cost you 5k or more to not know. If you get an unexpected CEL on startup turn it off IMMEDIATELY and check the codes. DO NOT TRY TO...

    Apr dudes. Do I need a stock MAP to pass inspection

    I went APR ko4 with the 3bar MAP sensor and sold my stock map because why wouldn't I but then I realized I might need the stock one to pass inspection cause it throws a MAP sensor code in stock mode. Should I buy another stock one off somebody or is there a workaround?

    Theres 100 ways people have said and none of them work. Ive tried em all. If you have a DP and youre getting RICH or LEAN codes and surging or pulling timing from A/F issues, try this.
