    People with longtubes come in please..

    Got a 99 TA with Jet-Hot long tube headers and borla exhaust. I have O2 sims, but they don't seem to be doing anything for the SES light. I used my friends O2 sims (not sure if that matters or not) that he ran on his 99 TA. My car ran like complete shit, idling rough, didn't accelerate on command(took a few moments to finally kick in), so the car was bad. Took the O2 sims off and its perfect now. Basically its inspection time and I need something to take the SES light off and I can get it inspected by a friend of mine. Any ideas on what to do in this situation?? Thanks for your help.

    First thing I would do is get the codes read so you actually know what is causing the problem. You might be working on something that is not actually throwing the code.? Autozone and I am sure others will read the code for you for free.

    'kay thanks. People on LS1tech.com said that the sims might of been hooked up to the front O2's instead of the rear O2's. I'll have to look into that.

    hmm, well you really cant mix them up, the rear sensor wiring harness is beside the tranny and the front ones are above the front cross member.
    Post codes and someone around here will hook u up

    Yes. Well the car was running shitty when the O2 sims were put in. Take them off and the car runs perfect again. So I'm guessing they were hooked up to the wrong one's.
