      It should work. Generic autozone cap and have had 0 issues. Don't mind the mess in the middle of redoing my wire tuck.

      they are VERY common.. much of what i have done, has been taken and learned from here, and so far i havent had any issues.

      and please, yes! that info would be awesome.

      niceee. that looks 1000 times better than a stock ALH bay. I hate all of the vacuum lines and other busy crap
      I bet with some polished lines, remote fuel filter, clean routing for a front mount and a few other odds and ends it would be an amazing bay...
      got the gears turning now lol

      lol, ok. so, if i put the right resistors everywhere, i should have no codes and the car should run properly, right?

      either that or there are a few tuning companies that could delete the coding permanently so youll never get check engine light and you wont have to use resistors. but resistors is the easy way to go.

      the car will run fine, but you wont have no codes, your still going to throw the codes for improper flow on SAI, and also probably a EVAP code. The pump isnt there so it doesnt see the excess air pumped in on a cold start and the EVAP solenoid isnt there so it doesn't see the solenoid functioning thus throwing codes for it.

      Software coding is the only way to be truly code free, as well as running the proper resistors since you still need to complete the circuit, this will keep your fuel trims. well at least on my 1.8t it does. not quite sure about the new motronic ECU's but im assuming its the same.

      Heres a pic of my bay for the thread, it wont look like this for too much longer tho

      ok, thanks!

      i already have the SAI combi valve and map sensor (on the 09s is like that ) all deleted by United Motorsports...

      i'll talk to them about deleting the n80 as well then.

      thanks for the help. i'm still far from shaving, but i like my clean bay!
