VCTS removal review

So, today I finally finished with the tail lights and got to drive the car. my impressions of the VCTS removal and the Honing and Polish, the throttle response is much better and my buttometer says it did something. Not sure what but, the throttle response and the mid- high power range seems to be a bit better. I have no software to prove this but soon I will be getting an AP and will log accordingly!

-CoolGuy stickers, mad awesome bright lights, blackedout lenses, super wicked general tires I got from Sears for forty dollars, some random size shift boot, mad skillz shift knob with fake carbon fiber. This is the stuff you put in your sig when you have nothing done to your car but you want to feel kewl with your wire wrap and neon LED underdash lights.

Re: VCTS removal review

Sorry all I sold the car. I didn't take any pics. That's why I didn't post them. A guy here in Moore has the car. Not sure he's found the site yet though. I honed / polished and mirrored the ports the best I could as well. The car became more responsive and seemed quicker on the buttometer. I cut the bar that passes through the intake ports so just the end with the rubber grommet was left to plug the hole.

WARNING: The CEL will come on after you do this. Unless you have a standback or some other tuning device. It will also void warranty if you have one.

Re: VCTS removal review

there are a couple tricks you can do with relays and other things to eliminate the CEL without AP... afaik, standback will not do anything for the CEL
