IT WILL NOT WORK ON PZEV CARS.

If your car has the air injection tubing on the stock manifold (which means you have a PZEV), the header will throw a CEL for the air pump being disconnected. The ECU will not throw a CEL because of the o2 sensor, but because of the air pump instead.

So would I be able to get rid of the CEL with a tune? SYZ I see you are in California so I'm assuming your car was also a PZEV. Can i just leave the air pump in place blowing air into the atmosphere or will it still throw a CEL? Thanks

Well the O2 cheat will work but I saw that SYZ removed his whole air pump and I'm wondering if I leave the air pump in tact if it will still throw the air pump CEL
