    Tuner to Revomve SAI Check engine Light

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Ok so here is the scenario. I am now in possession of a 2001 A4 Quattro Avant 1.8t that just came from Alabama. (I live in Arizona) The car came with the ever popular vacuum hose delete/simplification. That of course has the SAI Incorrect Flow CEL that I need to get cleared. I read on the forums that this code can be erased from the ecu's code completely so that it is like it never existed. Might anyone know of a Tuner who can get this done?
    Attempting to fix this system by putting it back to stock is my last option and I do not want to do it.
    Reason: In Arizona I cannot pass emissions with ANY check engine lights.

    Yes kompresed can do that, (hes on nefmoto too :P), but I can too, if you have the necessary tools to flash/read the car :)

    Well FTDI based blue cable can read me7 using Nefmoto flasher but I work with MPPS and its really great, anyway if you can read with it and write its fine too.

    Interesting, at least its not useless. All of those terms are new to me but I get the gist of it. I guess it comes down to what Kompresed uses. I need to wait for him to reply and find out. :)

    Well, all we ( tuners - if tuning remote) need you to do is read the car , to get a bin ( flash) from the chip inside so we can tune it, then you just overwrite the old one with the tool of choice :)
