    Just unplug it. The EML will probably come on but its nothing to worry about. You can have the SAI coded out of the ECU by a good mapper. The SAI helps with emissions on start up but has nothing to do with the overall running of the car. Drop Rick at Unicorn motor developments for some more information.

    I have completely removed my SAI and had it coded out.
