I'm the proud owner of a 2000(x) Coupe turbo (silver, with red leather) 43K on the clock. Really nice car for its age.....
After reading many posts on this very interesting site, I've decided to start on the basic mods. Starting with the airbox.
Currently, all I've done, is remove the two pipes for the standard de-restiction of the air box, nothing else done at the moment.
Since removing these, I'm now getting my EML on after a few minutes of driving. Error code P0170, which is for the fuel trim from what I've read.
I've also read that usually a faulty MAF causes this, and if replaced, the error does not re-occur.
Could this also be caused by my minor mod to the airbox? If so, would a phase 1 map cure this, or is this likely to be the MAF?
Also, been looking at the pre-cat removal, unfortunatly, I've one of the rare Coupe's where the pre-cat is integrated with the main cat pipe, and is therefore not a direct bolt on replacement. Need to save up a few reddies before I look at that mod
