it'll thro a code untill you get it tuned out. i have never done it but i think you gotta get a freeze plug to go in the hole you make in the intake, then all the block off plates2002 Z28 M6, Suncoast Creations ram air, port/polish TB w/ bypass and bumpstop, heater hose mod, stainless steel long tubes, ORY w/ dual cutouts, Magnaflow, BMR SFC, UMI Torque Arm, LS7 clutch w/ drill mod, Pro 5.0 w/ Lous short stick, MSD wires, 4.10s, good maintenancehttp://www.fquick.com/blue02z

I think the programmers like Hypertech will clear the code, but unless you get it tuned using LS1Edit or a similar program which actually deletes the code, it'll keep popping up.
You can buy the kits for around $15 I think with all the plugs and hardware. Speed Inc sells a set, and a few others.

well wouldn't one of the cons be you're not emissions legal?
a pro would be more space under the hood. I know I hate bumping into all that junk when under the hood.

I did it 20,000 miles ago. I never got the code tuned out. There are no ill effects from having the light on, other than the annoyance of looking at the light. It cleans up the engine bay and makes plug changes easier, especially if you get rid of the AIR system as well. The parts should cost you about $15 and it is an hours work.
