So I'm tired of spending countless hours finding and fixing vacuum leaks, so I'm considering doing the SAI/N249/PCV/EVAP delete. I'm wondering if anybody in the valley has performed this delete? More importantly has anybody performed the delete and gone through emissions (and passed)?
I've read the entire "DIY" thread: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...CV-EVAP-Delete
From what I've read the fact that I have APR Stage 2 makes no difference either way. The majority of the people in the thread say you won't pass emissions as is, however there are a few that claim they did the delete and passed fine, nobody from AZ either way. There is a guy in there who says he can do some programming to ensure that you pass emissions for $50, although that was a while ago and I haven't contacted him (wanted to see if anybody in AZ has done it and their results with emissions to see that is necessary).
Was there anything special as far as the software you had to do or mess with or was it a typical install?
The more I'm thinking about it the more I'm leaning toward doing it. I don't have to have emissions done again until 2014, since I just passed last month. I'm graduating from ASU in December. Once I find a job, I plan on buying a new car and putting this one in the garage while I build it into what I want. I'm guessing I'll be able to get a new car before I have to have emissions tested again on this car, so I don't really have much to worry about. I'm just tired of all the codes from the SAI or N249 or vacuum leaks.
And its a plus that you can adjust your boost and timing and add 2 step + more...
