    I agree. I just wanted to make sure people weren't getting the impression that a mech fix will result in the passing of the sniffer. Two different tests.

    o2 smog with mech fix

    In the past i have gone to smog and passed with a mechanical fix. that being said i also received a mechanical fix with my Greedy Ti-C exhaust system that i purchased. i experienced the CEL and cruise Light when the new exhaust system was installed, but after a few hours of drive time the CEL and cruise light code that was tripped reset itself with no need to clear the code myself. I did loose the use of cruise control, only while the CEL and cruise lights were on. FYI i only passed smog on the OBD II there was no sniffer on the exhaust. Smog was done is WA state. Hope this helps

    Hi Andrew and welcome to the club.

    This thread is actually going on eight years old now - we don't do stuff the same way anymore.

    What year car do you have? The reason I ask is if you have a newer car and you installed a downpipe with your exhaust you really must get a new map or you can damage the car. With a new map that CEL will be disabled and you don't need any mechanical fix.

    You have to get a stage II map on that if you are running a downpipe - only bugeyes can do without it.

    The best and cheapest bet is to get an open port cable and an opensource map. You can buy a map and they will work with you on getting it running right.

    OPENSOURCE TUNING: Your questions answered here!!! RomRaider + Tactrix

    It isn't as complicated as it sounds - you need to install ECUFlash on a laptop, get the Openport cable and the map, and carefully follow the instructions for flashing. Follow the instructions very carefully, and especially if anything hangs up during the process do not turn the ignition off.

    This will make a dramatic improvement in your car's power output and it is critical for the longevity of the motor.

    is the Cobb Tuning Accessport worth the money. Or would you recommend a different one.

    You can get a better opensource tune for a lot less money, unless you want the conveniences.
