    Check Engine Light Please Help!!!

    Hey Guys,

    I was trying to use the link in the sticky but it didnt seem to work for me. I dont want to post in the wrong place but my check engine light has been on since I got the new exhaust. There are no Cats but I just want to make sure that these codes not something serious and hopefully a mail order tune can fix this light!

    PO1404
    PO1416
    PO1154

    This is just what the guy gave me and he couldnt find the codes in his books any help would be great!

    Thanks in Advance!

    Yea my O2s are stock, the muffler shop simply place the sensors back in the new exhaust and removed my cats.

    No =( I couldnt afford it.. the exhaust alone cost me about 800 bucks and I had to buy wheels and tires too plus other random maintenance, it just wasnt in the budget i need to buy me some pace setters and install em myself i guess =(

    your fine...i was just curious on what your new exhaust detailed. I would get a tune and those codes will be tuned out. You dont need the 1311s if you are running stock manifolds

    1311s are vette 02 sensors ..they are longer so they eliminate the need for extensions after headers.

    there is still some debate over if they are any different in the 02 sensor than f-bodys ...but they seem to handle reading further down stream better than f-bodys
