I just installed a set of bbk long tubes with y pipe. I removed my cats and put in o2 sims. No engine light. But i noticed i had and air pump that put air into my eghaust manifaults and my new headers did not use this. So i removed the hoses from the pump, but pump is still working and is noisy. How can i shut the thing off? Hope i don't need this. Any advise?

How do you like the BBKs? My brother just put some on his 07 Mustang GT and they look great.

I would recommended getting a tune to delete your ERG stuff. Then just plug up your whole's... Did you buy the race version header's?????

pull the pump out and pull the fuse out of the fuse box that runs your air pump.

its called EGR and AIR delete, just unbolt your egr and the line that goes into the top of your intake and put a freeze plug in it, then for your air pull the lines out of the car and then your air pump will be under your drivers side light. you will have a ses light but it wont be on or noisy.

O2 simulators trick your computer into thinking you still have your cats. It plugs into your after cat o2 senser harness and ties back. You don't use your after cat sensors. I got them from after thoughts auto for around $80. You will not get a check engine code with these when you remove your cats. My car is a 2002 trans am ws-6 with underdrive pullys, slp air lid kit, tuner, and complete eghaust and i just put 19" zo-6 roms on the front and back with nitto invo rubber. 305/30-19 on rear.

I really like them so far. Looks good and fits great. They went in super easy, i didn't even have to remove a sparkplug or even have to fight to get them in. We used a lift and just put them in from the bottom. It was the nicest fitting headers i've seen!

I took the fuse out but it threw a code and that sucked so i put the fuse back in.

um yea.. you cant just take it out and not expect it to throw a code. If you bought race headers you should have realized WHAT race headers are before you bought them. You need to have the air and egr tuned out, then take it out or else it will throw codes.

what i did was after i installed the headers i threaded up the vac. tubes and just bent them so that they would fit.!

bbk makes headers with the egr connection right?? I haven't seen them (probably because i'm not sure where to look)

You can either remove the pump or just pull the fuses. Very simple.

No I dont think they do for our cars. I bought mine from LMPerformance, there was no option for AIR & EGR.
