    If you're a gear head we all know what it means
    I know I know....but some things just shouldn't be tomato/tomoto.

    Must be a girl thing.

    So realistically, what could be the problem? Is it something I should worry about with my 228r cam and m6?

    no......as long as the rest of your car is in good shape. There are things you just need to plan on doing that might not be at the top of the list of things to do. O2 sensors for example......they're a maintenance item just like spark plugs. Plan on swapping those out at some point and if you're doing a header install it's a good idea to swap them out if there's 70-80k miles on them and getting the bosch 13111 sensors since they seem to resist the heater and switching codes the most. His tps issue I would guess is a fluke or someone either tried drilling the blade or over adjusted the set screw trying to get the car to idle. Bottom line is start a thread here asking questions and listen to what people tell you.......people here have been through it before and that's the benefit of this board. Learning from other peoples experiences. I have this same cam and tuned it myself. Great street/strip cam that has excellent street manners. My wife drives my car on a regular basis to run errands and things like that. Start a new thread with any questions you have and I'm sure they will all get answered. I'll offer what advice I can as long as you'll at least listen to what we have to say and take it into consideration.

    Thank you. Everything is new or had about 5000 miles on it. This 6.0 is new, but the "new to me but at 60xxx miles" motor back in november lasted 3 weeks and was a costly mistake. I made threads on everything I could think of; just being a girl, second guessing everything and he kind of scared me a sec with his questions. Thank you again.

    i switch the old o2 sensor's, TPS and now its not stalling. ???? the car is running find now, but it's not a big deal but you can feel a little more brakes you have to use due to the stock stall. and does TPS and o2 sensor affect the idle and running that much, but im going to get it re tune to the max monday.

    02 sensors are a major part of the fuel system, responsible for constantly trimming fuel. They are also wear items like spark plugs, just like Orion mentioned. So they should be replaced every so often. Some tuners say every 40k, others say 60-70k. They just get lazy over time, affecting fuel mileage and drivability.

    TPS is important as well. If they go haywire it can affect alot of things. Your transmission tables rely on it, spark and fuel tables rely on it, etc...

    Nearly impossible to tune the car properly if either of those items are causing problems.

    i went back and re-read his post and seen the exhaust leak... all i seen before was the 02's... damn my adhd...

    heater codes are pretty common with headers.....they really won't effect how the car runs that I've ever noticed. Hopefully you replaced your sensors with bosch 13111 sensor that resist the heater and switching codes. Any new sensor will be fine for a bit but if you stuck with the stock sensor your heater and/or switching codes will return.

    part number 13111? Bosch makes a ton of sensors.....13111 sensors are actually vette rears. They have a longer harness and supposedly have a better heater in them. Not sure about the heater but I know they cured mine and a ton of other's heater/switching codes.
