alright so i have a race prepped motor from schimmel performance and my secondary air injection system is gone. the problem im having now is that my check engine light is on because of my sai being gone. i know 42 draft designs and a few other companies sell a plug for the deletion of your sai system...my question is if this also tricks the ecu and doesnt throw a trouble code...any help would be appreciated because my car needs to be inspected...


alright heres my gti with the big old nasty front mount...and the euro plate is gone...

like all the plug does is plug the whole in the head, i read somewhere that if you plug a 330 ohm 10 watt resistor in to the sai plug then you can trick the ecu, but this may only work on obd1 since they have one o2 sensor because in obd2 the second o2 sensor sends word to the ecu whether or not the car is running lean due to the sai pump throwing extra air in to the head.

Re: sai plug??? (Grits 'n gravy)

20 squared tuning makes a resistor i just found for the sai that will make the cel go bye bye...so anyone else with this problem, you can now get your car to pass inspection even though you dont have a sai system
