    Started my TGV deletes

    So I started my TGV deletes tonight. I would have put this in my progress thread but the forum wouldn't let me into my thread, oh well. Disassembly went pretty smooth, had a couple of snags due to not having the right tools. Once I got a drill for the pinned screws in the butterfly valves, everything went well. I am going to grind out the partition tomorrow.

    Are you welding, using screws, or using block-off plates (e.g., KSTech)?

    I have heard quick steel compound works. I might go with caps though.

    I was holding off originally until I got some new gaskets from KSTech, and I disassembled everything and my old gaskets look great. Whatever, Ill just replace them anyway.

    So is there anything I should do before I fire this thing up? Besides deleting my TGV CEL's? I only ask because a local guy on his 05 STi just did deletes and said that he knocked pretty bad until he reset something. It didn't make sense to me I kind of disregarded.

    Pretty sure you need a tune to run TGV deletes?? Could be wrong though

    Well I was told to not adjust my cold start enrichment until it specifically needs it. No reason to see knock though right?

    When you reflash the ECU with the TGV codes disabled it should clear any learning from RAM. I would just double check with Learning View after flashing that indeed any fuel or knock learning has been zeroed out. If not just reset the ECU.

    Alright so got her all started up and no leaks. Surprisingly my idle didn't really wander at all. I revised my map to disable all TGV related CEL's but did not touch my warm-up enrichment and it did just fine. Got it warmed up and took it for a spin and she really had some more pep in her step. I think this mod really complemented the 20G.

    hmmm this is interesting. I was really under the impression that it required a tune but I stand corrected

    Yeah based off of Unibomber's Manifesto you do not need to tune, the only 'tune' like work you would have to do would be taking care of the TGV CEL's thus averting limp mode and possibly warm-up enrichment if needed. So far every time I have started my car when it's cold, I almost can't even tell I deleted my TGV's.
