      Installed a AWE turbo outlet pipe a month or so ago. After about 200 miles, I mashed the gas going up a highway entrance ramp, and one of the spring clips holding the new pipe to the intercooler hose popped, causing a small boost leak. Totally my error - installed it just a bit off the mark. Thankfully no damage and I was able to limp home to fix the clamp. Here's the cool part. MY CEL came on, of course. Went to Auto Zone today and reset the CEL with a handheld OBD scanner. No charge.

      Nope - its legit. I'm an attorney in Springfield MO with no ties to AZ. In fact, I'm a friend and a former colleague of the grandson of the fellow that started O'Reilly Auto Parts, and typically do all my parts and tools business at O'Reilly's. I just went to AZ this time around becuase they had the OBD scanner.

      This is nothing new. They've been doing this for years. Would borrow
      Their obd tools alot for my B5 until I went on eBay and bought
      A pocket scan tool for $25.
