Good afternoon all,
I have overly confused myself by reading all of the posts under the Adaptronic heading. There is a bunch of good information here but I have some dumbass questions. Since all of the posts I have seen are on a turboed car with WB02 the GM IAT (open element) sensor installed...my situation is looking to be, well different.
In my initial install, the plan is to go adaptronic on the car being stock... just to quash all of the issues before turboing and adding more variables. I also hope to be able to provide a good base map for anyone needing one for a stock NBB.
Anyhow, the questions I am coming up with are:
On the Adaptronic, can I install this without a WB02 and expect anything good to come of it? Alternately, I already have an AEM UEGO; but I am out of holes! If I were to yank my front factory 02 sensor from the car and keep the UEGO there (connected via serial DB9)... will this cause me any issues? Is anyone out there retaining both factory 02 sensors in addtion to the WB?
Now with the IAT sensor, I still have my factory one there...since the car is stock and all. Is it suggested to install the GM sensor and stuff it in the factory location till I go turbo in another week or so? Or shall I stick with the factory IAT?
Also, if it is at all possible... I would like to be able to go without OBDII codes. We have emissions testing every 2 years and if it is even remotely possible to run without CELs on... it would make me feel better about my wife driving the car. (It is a mental thing on her side.) If I leave the MAF installed and the factory 02 sensors in place, are there any other things that may give a CEL?
Anyhow, I am suffering from information overload. Really need the help because cold feet are starting to set in.
Oh, and does anyone feel like sharing their base map? I will be running 600CC Deatschwerks Injectors once the adaptronic is functioning well on the factory config. Then the turbo kit from my 99 will go onto the 2002.
Thanks everyone and cheers,
