I think we all got mixed up with the number of flappers our cars have. Dammit The ones I was referring too are Intake flappers that are located in the plastic housing within Intake Manifold (see link to CR TDI engine self study psrumors posted.Call me naive as I want to ask the following, we are talking "exhaust" flapper valve right? I have seen a couple of you refer to it as "intake" ??? I went to page one and pictures are disabled....just making sure I am not making a mistake...is there an intake flapper valve as well???....All this time I been talking about my exhaust flapper valve.
And to TDI Wagen: could it be that at least before Mike Malone was just disabling exhaust flapper on their program as std operating procedure assuming some of us would run straight pipes? there is a reason I was told my stage 2 program would support the delete....
torrimac: So today is the second day since I unplugged Intake Flappers and I still don't have CEL. I don't know what is going on but my thought is it will eventually come up when I go past 3K rpm. ECU should detect the signal from v157 motor at the start of the engine and above 3000 rpm since that's when the flappers are wide open. I usually shift around 2500 -2700 so perhaps I haven't gotten to the right point?
I am calling the shop that installed the tune to find out if Stage 1.5 is the same as Stage 2 that is listed on Mark's website.
