Haven't forgotten about you - I cant locate the photos and my car is in the body shop this week. I will have the car up on a lift the week of the 15th (hopefully) and can probably grab a photo then and post it when I have a moment. Sorry for the delay!

Cheers!

No clearance issues at all. I'll have to search and see if I have photos still - or I'll get out there today and try and crawl under the car for you and grab a pic. I'll update you soon!

Sooooooo sorry it took so long! I actually lost my PASSWORD and it took FOREVER to figure it out!

Anyways, Running Completely catless - NO CEL Lights. Welded in a flex pipe to reduce the staunchness in the exhaust (not even the slighted rub or rattle now). Replaced basically every gasket seal in the exhaust to eliminate leaks. Relocated the B2S2 Bung location so the O2 wasnt hanging off my car and re-ran the anti-foulers.

Viola! Catless Exhaust / no LEAKS / NO CEL / NO SIM KIT!

- The last thing I was thinking about doing was running some heat shield wrap on them but for now I am going to heat shield the intake and install a vented hood. Yes! Sweet Sweet Carbon! Cheers Mates!

Posh469 Looks like I may need to do some wiring and resplicing, however.... before I do:

Below are the current codes on the car:

P0153
HO2S Circuit Slow Response, Bank 2 Sensor 1

P0156
HO2S Sensor Circuit Malfunction, Bank 2 Sensor 2

I would think if the B2S1 location is getting a slow read is it really the secondary 02 (post cat) that is reading too soon.
Therfore has the 02 sensor really gone bad, or should I just add an anti-fouler to B2S2 Location and create the timing difference.

Again, only anti-fouler currently installed is on B1S2. (I think this is why the only error I have is on Bank 2)

Logic tells me adding the anti-fouler to B2S2 Location should work but just looking for a second opinion before I physically start to replace 02 sensors.

Cheers!

Posh469 lol of course just my luck. The most PITA one to remove.

Well, I suppose I'll look at purchasing a new 02 for this location and see if I can get at it without having to remove much. I'll update once again after I have a new one to install.

Bempa That would be the heater circuit in sensor. Most common fault is that heater circuit is broken inside sensor.

Posh469 Ok well all Throttle and MAF Codes went away. Hooray!

Now I'm left with a silly P0135 Code for B2S1. (Now im sort-of scratching my head as its the only code being thrown)
- So weird, as I still have not installed the anti-fouler for b2s2 but yet I'm popping a P0135 Code for a B2S1 Location???
08-25-2017 02:34 PM
Posh469 Wow...Ok clearly forgot to plug back in one of the sensors on the intake.
- Not the MAF Sensor but I think some EVAP Connector with 2 pins. VSV Connector I think.

Hopefully that will take care of the throttle codes.


Thanks SolarYellow!

01 SolarYellow Check your connections on the MAF and throttle body. As for O2 codes. Simulatorwould be my suggestion.
08-25-2017 12:26 PM
Posh469 Well it was a nice 200 mile run without any problems however today the CEL popped on.

Below are the codes read:
P2138 - Throttle / Pedal Position Sensor / Switch "D" / "E" Voltage Correlation
P0102 - Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input
P0113 - Intake Air Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit High Input
P0156 - O2 Circuit (Bank 2, Sensor 2)
P0156 - O2 Circuit (Bank 2, Sensor 2)

I had a feeling these codes might pop since I never installed the anti-fouler on the Y-Pipe Section. I do however have an anti-fouler (just arrived in mail) for this section - that I (Fingers crossed) hope will get rid of these codes and the CEL.

I haven't driven her much except to the autozone to get the codes read. I also had them re-flash the codes to prohibit the car from running lean while I drive her over to the lift.

I am really hoping the anti-fouler will take care of all this business but am now thinking I may have to end up with a sim kit after-all.

Anyone have any thoughts? Sound like shes really breathing now.

Lastly, anyone have an extra 02 Kit laying around before I source a new one?

As always, Thanks!

humbucker87 So far I'd say a big pass!

Especially given the lack of other cheap options out there. As far as I could tell you basically have these ~$100, OBX ~$450, and then Dezod and Figs for $1k+. I'm sure those are all fantastic headers, but for someone on a budget I think these are definitely worth a look.

edit: here is where I bought mine fyi... http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAINLESS-ST...D/181127762435

As a followup to my comment above the DNA header did change my exhaust fitment some to where the tip is touching the bumper so I may have to get down there and fiddle with it some.
I noticed this a little too with my set-up.

I was difficult to say "how much" but I know when I mated the Y-pipe to the header it was pulled forward some. I too noticed my exhaust tip moved a little closer to the bumper. I think (as you say) it requires just a little fiddling.

So Humbucker, for $155.00 what is your review?
- Recommend or Pass? (or too early to tell? lol)

Posh469 Onsit,

I actually only added the anti-fouler sensor extension to the post cat 02 sensor located on the header manifold.
- I didnt even touch the second one located on the Megan Y-Pipe.

That day I ended up purchasing another CNT Anti-fouler off Amazon but the CEL never came on as I had anticipated...
- Which I did think was a little odd but no CEL so... cant complain.
