So I just installed my cosworth header and flex last night and have no idea what to do with the air injection tube. The tube that went to the rail above the stock exhaust manifold.
Also, does everyone just leave the other two 02 sensors unpluged? Or do they just leave them hanging?

you can just take the whole air injection bit off the car.. follow the hose down the to area opposite the cai filter.. .. on the pass side.. theres a funny looking thing near the a/c component.. just take it off.. youll prob have to put it on for smog ... but it will remove some weight and get rid of that hose going across the engine bay

Do you have the Cosworth ECU changes??? I threw a code and mine did the same thing. I think VatoZone uses cheap scanners. However, I unhooked my battery for 5 min and now the CEL is gone.

We have a slightly different ECU setup than most cars. Since we run a CANbus network to the ECU, the store will need an updated scanner that works with CANbus. My guess is the store is running an OBD-2 only scanner without the CANbus protocal.

yep...not even the smog program has the updated protocol and even snap-on just released the update for the brick scanner about a month ago. autozone won't have it for a while.

Sure have.
Anyone know how to read the codes without taking it to vatozone since they don't have the update to read it.
