Hi,

I was wondering after getting ready of the ECL with HP tuners will the car pass PA inspection like normal?

Passes in Texas as long as there are no active codes.

I've had multiple valve failures and I may just buy a Cat back system without the valves. If I understand what you've indicated, that wouldn't necessitate a check engine light?

Second, in your experience when the valves fail, do they fail safe - open?

Thanks for your time.

Valves fail open. If you do the above steps, you will not have a check engine light. My connectors for the valves are fully disconnected.

Fuse pulled, codes removed, happy days. Thanks FYREANT

Now to decide if I should stick with the OEM Stingray exhaust, or go for a Borla Z06 one....hmmm

If my car has been tuned via the ECM and AFM has been tuned out there, do I still need the CCM tuned?

Guess im saying had my car tuned and the tuner said he turned AFM off and I know he only tuned the ECM, so am I good?

I had the same.... later removed the AFM valves and installed the simulators Edgy was selling....those failed on me recently and the car threw the AFM valve codes Ant described turning off. Tuning AFM off by tuner doesn't tune out the Valves. Just keeps the motor from going 4cly mode..... I purchased the HP tuners and followed Ant's post...no more CEL and have since removed the simulators.

So if you buy HP Tuners and the 2 credits for the C304 module do the deactivation on the AFM valves and do not modify the ECM software is this a warranty busting move?

Technically using HP Tuners to do anything to your car is a warranty busting move.

Anyone in the North East PA area, or close by, willing to tune out my AFM so I can begin work on the exhaust?
