    What the F*** did I do??

    I took off my lid, maf, bellow, and throttle body because I am going to send it in to be ported... Today, I want to drive my car... So I put everything back on and start the car and it starts up, then stalls, struggles for a bit to run, then dies... I checked all the connections and I hooked everything back up...? What did I do?

    Unhook your battery and let it relearn...Everything should be fine after that..

    I believe I have a hole in my EGR tube... Can I just buy the block off plates and rid myself of the system all together? I know it will set of the SES but AutoZone clears them for free... However, after cleared will it come back every time i start my car or will it just be gone?

    Going back and forth here. Where's the leak - in the tube or is the intake cracked or something? You can buy a block off plate for the exhaust connection and intake if you decide to delete the AIR system. Auto Zone can clear codes, but deleting the AIR it will keep it coming back unless it's turned off permanently with tuning.

    its where the tube meets the metal connector that is bolted to the intake... So will I have to take it somewhere to permanently delete the code?
