Re: mil eliminators

ive heard somewhere that they only help with a hi-flow mid pipe, not a o/r mid pipe, best bet is if you have a tuner go in and turn off the bank2 sensors, if you dont have one itd be a good excuse to invest in one;D lol

They're awesome! Connect them to the back O2 sensors. The purple will need some modification. Cut the little pieces that align the two pieces and it snaps in place.

The driver's side(blue)is done and a zip tie is holding it in place and away from the exhaust.

I got some on my 04 with a Magnaflow off road x pipe and I have no issues with the check engine light. The guy I bought it from put them in there and he said its just a plug and play sorta thing but keeps that annoying check engine light gone. Good luck to ya though man!

MIL eliminators is the best way to go. Disconnect the negative post on the battery then reconnect and you will never have to deal with it again.

You will have to have a custom tune made because the government won't let the average person do it. I have an sct tuner and also custom tuning software so I just did it myself.

As far as I know that feature has been disabled in hand held tuners due to government regulations. A professional tuner can still do it though.

Try unplugging the battery for a little while and see how long the light stays off when u plug it back in. Might be long enough to pass. Lol
