    Z20LET - problem with standard setup??

    Hello,
    after a few weeks of thinking my Apexi is cool on my coupe, i'm now mega peed of with the noise it makes (and the fact that the AFM is sat on top of the turbo)!!!

    So i look in my box of bits that came with the car when I bought it and I find:
    Standard air box
    Standard crossover and oil filter bit
    Standard hosing (well I borrowed bits for that)
    But anyway, took off the Apexi and put it back to Absolute standard condition.
    Took it for a drive and its struggling to reach 500 RPM on idle and engine management light is on!

    So I reverted back to the Apexi set up and all is well again!
    WTF?
    HELP? lol

    No reason it should put the light on.

    Maybe you didnt plug the afm fully or you plugged it in with the ignition on.

    I have had a boost pipe pop off and put the light on but after a drive its gone out

    hmmm, no, engine off and battery disconnected, plugged in fine, as I say am........stumped!

    is it possible for the ECU to adjust itself to slightly varying setups? I know the Apexi's been on the car for a while now.

    If the car drives ok with the standard set up I would drive it for a bit and see if the light goes off

    might try that actually Lee, it did seem okay, except for nearly stalling as its revving so little (never actually cut out though, seemed to revive itself at the last minute)!
