    scanning is not pointless since he can read the fuel map , see if its running lean or rich .

    yes, the uppipe sensor will throw either EGT too high or EGT too low code. The rear O2 sensor will throw a cat. inefficiency code.

    Woah. Somehow I missed that Bullet for my Valentine is coming. The end of August through like March has so many sick concerts coming up. Have fun at the show, man. We'll catch up sometime.


    Also, definitely still check the car out with at least an AP if not a scanner. If it throws a CEL, and the light goes off, my guess is that it'll come back on. Check the MAF sensor, too. If they come dislodged or a little loose, it'll intermittently throw CELs. And it's simple to fix.

    checking the mas isn't a bad idea , even if its a feshly cleaned/oiled k&n filter , maybe to much oil .
