Pulling the AIR Tube Empty
PostSubject: Pulling the AIR Tube   Pulling the AIR Tube Icon_minitimeSun Aug 25, 2013 9:38 pm

I have the A.I.R. pump removed and the bolts securing the tube to the block are also off. The tube wiggles around freely, but since it is a giant "U" shape that cradles the engine, I haven't figured out yet what the best exit path is for it. I'd like to remove it intact and not cut it, just in case. What do I need to do/what else do I need to remove to get it out easily?

There should also be some minor reprogramming done to the ECM if you are removing it, As the ECM still thinks it is there, regardless off it's actual removal.

I cut them (like Jay said) Cut it in three pieces and be careful of the spark plug wires when you pull the pieces up....

Not everyone would agree, so I'll simply pass along info from some other folks and people can decide for themselves about it.

Can I have your equipment if you are getting rid of it and it's an LT1?

Jason, are you planning on hooking up the OEM stock PCM with the air pump? Or are you going to keep the OBDI PCM from the 95 that is in it now? Or are you just wanting it for "show"?

I ask because there has been so much changed to that car over the years that if you put the stock PCM back in, you are GUARANTEED to get a check engine light....

BTW, what is your state of residence? If it is NM, and they don't have inspections...... register and get your plates from NM and keep moving.... Register in VA at a later date after you get all the parts.


I still have not found that sticker.

I need it for show. In NM, they have emissions only, so I would have to pass the sniffer and send them a report in order to get the inspection.
