previously I have had egt errors crop up and then a bunch of O2 codes.
So after searching on here I found the thread about resoldering them up. I did this a while ago and they seem to work ok and the O2 codes also went. However bank 2 egt is now throwing codes again (no CEL) and then it threw a B2S1 O2 code as well and put the CEL on.
So I cleared the codes and drove it about and the egt code is coming back repeatedly after every start up and its now in crappy limp mode and mpg is down. But the O2 code does not always come straight back on, sometimes its off for a week, other times a day.
Can I presume that the dead EGT is causing the O2 sensor to throw a code?
Now i am loath to pay £350 of my great british pounds for new egts. I dont particularly want to pay £60 for the pcbs that Polish guy sells either - mainly because getting the damn things out looks a nightmare! I would rather pay a couple of hundred for a new tune that codes the them out! But I did stumble upon some plug and play EGT deletes from a bloke on quattroworld...
Has anyone used these before? Look just the part, simple bit of kit to fool the ecu into thinking its at 925C. Also might stop these O2 codes and CEL cropping up. Might also mean I dont have to drive everywhere with the laptop to clear the codes!!!!
your opinions and experience are most appreciated.
