That code comes up in active code check mode, or are you saying it pops up as a stored code when you turn the key on

Swapping the MAF's is really the easiest thing to do at this point. If it doesn't help, then I'd dig into verifying the wiring.

Got it fixed! When I ripped out my Apexi boxes I accidentally cut pin/wire9 on B48. Connected it and BiNGO!!!

Thanks again to all you guys. Would have been to stubborn to check. It's always the stupid things just as i thought.

Videos to come.

Well, believe it or not. I started working on the car again. Turbo is out and putting the stock air intake system back in. Why, because the PCV lines were giving me an issue and not seating on the rear port on the block. Also with the new MAF, I couldn't run my short ram system I had previously. I want this car to run right and not leak shit everywhere so here I go again. Also found a coolant line that was leaking which would explain the coolant on the block and why it was mysteriously loosing fluid. AND, I kind of relocated the purge control solenoid.

I will post pics hopefully if it is finished tomorrow so we can finally get a clean solution to this problem. Of course it will never be good enough nd I am sure there will be one finally attempt if I ever have to pull the motor.

Got the Nardi wheel on and the hoses how I want them for now. Need to get some more clamps. Also retuned the AVC-r, pulls nice to 1.10 Bar

Got the BOV situated for now but I would like to come up with something different. Wish I had a welder.

Tony,

Sounds mean!

It has a pretty agressive popping/burble on deceleration.

Thanks Gents. I'll probably put the regualr exhaust back on when I get some more funds. Maybe throw in a high flow cat to be nice to Mother Nature.

And yes I love the wheel more than the previous one. Very fitting in my opinion. Classy yet sporty

Do NOT use a high flow cat!!! Didn't you see what happened to Mine? It melted and clogged inside entirely choking the Shit out of my engine and then blew a large chunk out and lodged in my muffler tip melting my bumper. Don't you do it man. They're garbage.

Is this video open downpipe? Sounds exactly like when I didn't have an exhaust after my down pipe.

I have an open cat then straight piped to the bumper. I had my mic next to the exhaust which is why it is so load. So no cat at huh haha.

Kimo,

I think your cat problem was related to the specific brand or you got a fluke bad one. What brand did you have?

I've got a magnalfow "performance" catalytic converter that's been on my car since 2005 without any issues. So I don't think you can say "all" high flow catalytic converters are bad.

Maybe not but it's not something I'd try again. Was trying to be "green" and it screwed me. I'll look for it on summitracing. It was a cheap one I think it was only $40. Fair warning.

Well I figured out why I couldn't find it on summit. Searched my build journal and it seems I got it from eBay. $40 with a 5 year warranty that I didn't register for.

Yeah, that's quite a bit smaller than the cat in my car.

Kimo, that isn't a metallic substrate cat, is it? Or, should I say "was it"? :)

OUCH!!! How are you doing? I'm glad you're alive! But you must be hurting from that impact! Such a beautiful car, and yes, gave its life for you!

Reminds me of how my Legacy protected me as it got totaled.
