I will be pulling the code
That right there would be a problem. What is the code exactly? Fix code first, then mod.

Anybody got a picture of this?

It was air to fuel mixture, i thought that the intake or the MAF was part of the issue.



Edit <> Funny thing, I go to Oriely's to get some carb cleaner to clean the IAC valve which I think I found and the CEL is not there.

Is this the IAC valve? If so I found it and cleaned it!! YEAH ME!!



Im doing another "reset" now and will report back with results. The above valve was very carbonated!

Looks like an IAC to me....hopefully it helps. You said you had some issues before you did the "stealth mod"?

So is the CEL gone or not? I am confused......and yes, the part you found, removed and cleaned is the IAC.

OK Skorp, much thanks. That all was a very good read. Generic enough to make sense and detailed enough to learn from.

I'm leaning towards vacuum because I did clean the MAF really well, or so I think.

You guys so freakin RAWK!!!!!!!!!!!
