    SAI removal

    Hi guys I was thinking of having a bash at removing my secondary air injection this afternoon. My question is other than the blanking plate do I need anything else? Car is a year 2000 s3 apy. (I also have tools haha)

    Thanks

    I didn't need anything else (other than what you've already mentioned) from when mine was removed tbh.

    I think it's the later cars/engines that may need a resistor but on my APY it was fine without one IIRC.

    ps good luck- make sure you have tin of elbow grease ready as chances are everything's seized up under there

    Jojo... I think you will need a free week to fit all the parts you have amassed

    Cheers for the info guys and I did look into the faq's but just double checking I don't need anything else other than the blanking plate? Its a good job that I looked for my blanking plate before I started undoing bits as it turns out I cant find it :-( however I will look around the house and hopefully get round to doing it on sunday.

    Thanks for the advice anyway fellas
