    Tech 2 and Airbox mod

    Hello,

    Just thought about this... how would a Tech 2 test be affected by the airbox mod?

    Cheers,

    It would'nt.

    Tech 2 is a handheld device that plugs into thecar to read error codes.
    De-restricting the airbox does not disturb any wiring or sensors so will not produce an error code.

    Hello,

    I thought that the adjustment of the ECU may show up as fault or something... cool then...

    only thing I can think is that the change in air induction may have upset a sensor but this shouldnt cause the EM light to come on??
