Passing Inspection With APR K04 V3.1

Okay, so i passed inspection last year no problem with this setup by:

1. Replacing the Map sensor to the stock one.

2. Setting car to Stock program

3. Driving 20-30 miles to reset readiness

4. Having one o2 spacer that has never given me a code since it was installed 2 years ago (I'm CBFA)

My question is, is it possible to not throw a code being in stock mode but having the 3 bar map sensor installed? Not having to swap that sensor out every year would be great. One of the screws is also stripped and i cannot remove it so im hoping i can reset readiness and not throw a code with the 3 map sensor in....Are other APR k04 users doing this same thing to pass inspections? Any input would be great.

Thank you!

I don't swap out my MAP sensor and I've never had an issue. I believe this just allows the ecu to see higher boost levels.

I thought it throws a code after a bit, maybe only if you go into too high of boost. Do you just avoid getting into boost for 30-50 miles until your readiness is resets?

If you're back in stock mode, you won't hit high levels of boost anyways. I just drive like I normally do. Never seemed to have any issues and I passed emissions testing in PA and MD doing so.

What DP are you running? I moved from a 42dd to the new cat APR DP. The spacer config I was using for the 42dd does not work on my APR and I throw a code. I'm having the RAI J-spacer installed today with the middle jet. Just wondering if anyone else is running similar setup.

I have a CTS turbo downpipe catless. I have the Vibrant or RAI Elbow spacer with the middle jet, worked like a charm

Mine ALWAYS throws the MAP code. im CBFA as well. theyre just more finicky so that might be the reason. No matter what I do, if i go back to stock mode it throws it.

I just recently talked to someone at APR and they said you can VAG-COM your ECU to re-enable the defeated o2 sensor in 91 or 93 mode so you can pass in tuned mode without having to go back to stock, which takes care of the MAP problem. I plan to try that once it warms back up.

Does anyone else agree that works?

Thanks for the info. Wondering if I should stick with the middle jet or switch to the smallest one due to mine being a catted DP. I guess I'll figure it out if it throws a code using the middle one.

wouldnt you want to go with the larger jet? Since youre CATTED and so you make LESS exhaust than a CATLESS?

Yes i'm CBFA as well, 22 miles so far no map code yet....I would love more information about re-enabling the defeated o2 sensor in 93 mode. Do you know where i can do this in VAG?

Yes you might have to experiment with the jets, middle one seems to be the most popular that works.

Since i one of the bolts is stripped on my map sensor, was thinking about leaving it bolted in but unplugging it....and plugging in the stock map sensor and ziptying it to the throttle body pipe.

Bad idea? Lol just until my monitors are set.

Right, right. I'll see how the middle one does and go from there.

I don't think the map code is enough to actually give a check engine light. Are you actually pulling codes or just waiting for the light to come on
