Code reference

Changed out my exhaust from front to back. We noticed too late that the second O2 sensor was poorly positioned, it rubbed the wires off against the heatshield. Have replaced manifold and everything fits now, but still have the following codes:
P-0445
P-0031
P-0037
Any idea what I might have damaged?

Thank you,
Wayne

Thanks for the response. Turns out the only problem was a bad fuse from the shearing of the O2 sensor.
With the advice of my mechanic and guidance from my Bentley manual that I finally broke down and bought; engine light is off and Schoetze is running like a raped ape.

No need to start a new topic, but it also feels good to finally have all my polyurethane bushings and shocks/struts installed.
I thought it might feel less comfortable with the stiffer bushings, but it doesn't. It could be because of the Koni FSD shocks and struts. Also installed the strut tower reinforcements from Madness.
With everything, she sounds and feels AWESOME!

Hello everyone from all of us.

No haven't made it to the Dragon yet. The event was not that long ago, but was still getting the parts and did not want to drive it with a supposed bad Cat and O2 sensor. I will definitely do it next year.

I just remapped my Unichip, now I can feel the difference. It sounded faster with the new exhaust, but now it really is faster. MTTS is going to be awesome!

Who remapped your unichip? I just had to uninstall mine because NWMINI said that is what was causing my car to go into limp mode under heavy acceleration. I may need a new unichip but I want someone local to take a look at it.

I did. I purchased the cable and added the free software to my cart. Read the information on the website, it explains how to get access to the maps. You will have to complete a non-disclosure statement. Remapping is simple kid you follow al the instructions in the instructional videos. Have to be patient with the videos, they seem choppy.
If you need assistance after that Aaron is very responsive to email and answers the phone every time.
The cable is like $30.
