Are you using the upstream sensors? And are they plugged in to the upstream plugs? When I did mine the connectors were backwards so we had to cut and splice the connectors so that they'd work with the extensions.

^ Definitely give your sensors and extensions a once over and make sure they're in the right place. If everything looks good there, give my Bama team a call so they can go over your tune! Our tunes are good 99% of the time. Occasionally there are errors because we hand write each tune. I'm confident my Bama team will fix it quickly! Majority of the time, its Small human error when filing your tune information form or by a Bama Member!

Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

I have the same set up on my 08, I get the code every once and a while. You can turn off your rear sensors with your tuner, not sure what effect it would have though. Since my code comes on only once and a while I just clear it when it does come on.

Make sure that the green is up stream and the blue are down stream, also DO NOT cut and splice the 02's, on the extensions you must cut the alignment tabs off to install them correctly.
