Re: vr6 trouble (redrocket18)

SAI is OBD2 only - right? That would lead me to believe that when the OBD2 swap was done, an OBD2 ECU was put in place which is expecting to see the SAI system on your current OBD1 motor.

Re: vr6 trouble (redrocket18)

...so the only problem is that the light is on? if the car doesnt drive any differently or bucks at part throttle/ full throttle then there is nothing to worry about... if it bothers you that much, then just take a peice of electrical tape and put it over the cel light until the chip comes in... i have the c2 chip as well and it does work... but cell is still on... only becasue of the speed sensor

Try the 12V VR6 tech forum or the Corrado forum. They both have lots of traffic. You are not likely to find much detailed technical help here.

Don't just post a thread in those forums, search. There's 10+ years of collected knowledge on this site, and though it can be a challenge to find it, chances are you can find a solution in an old thread.

We all know you aren't here to learn grammEr, but you, assumingly, have already graduated high school, which very well should have taught you how to do it. So, you should utilize those skills here as it will more than likely gain you a bit more respect, which will also cause people to offer more of a lending hand.
As far as the issue at hand(and this is purely based off what I was able to decipher from that nonsensical blabber of yours I read), does it have a proper matched ECU? Does the car run right? If so, get some electrical tape and cover up the CEL light and drive.
What all is in this $220 cooling kit anyway? I am intrigued.

That's my guess

Then he will have an egr fault. Some people use a resistor to plug into the sai soleniod pigtail to fool the ecu into thinking it is there. Search "SAI Delete"
