ok i know there are like a hundred threads on how to do the sai delete but I just got an 01 vr6 and pulled the engine to do some mods on it. and the SAI is already disconnected but just still bolted on (it was like that when i bought the car). I am new to VW tuning. Normally i build BMW's but i wanted to build a jetta. I've got everything i want to put on it but im also wanting to eleminate the SAI completely. The car ran like crap and im assuming it has something to do with this thing. correct me if im wrong. i need to remove it, block of the hole, plug the vacume line at the solenoid but leave the electrical connections hooked up, then get it flashed and that will get rid of everything that has to do with the SAI and stop the CEL. but where do i go to get it flashed? because my genisys system wont flash it. i would just buy a whole new ECU for it but then i would still have to have it flashed by the dealer to get it to work for my car so it seems like a waste of time.
While ive got the eninge out im doing a full rebuild on it adn using autotech 262 cams. then adding a T3 turbo kit with a turbo timer, front mount intercooler, F1 racing flywheel, Stage 4 clutch kit, NGK plug wires, ZEX plugs, cold air intake, and a ZEX 150 wet nitrous kit. (the turbo kit is going to be set to only 5 PSI and im not ever planing on using the nitrous just puting everything on it because it makes it look better at the shows.)
is there anything else you would recommend?
