There’s a hose sticking of my driver’s side TGV that I don’t know where it goes….will my car explode and kill everyone within 500 miles?No, that’s just a vent hose and goes to nothing, leave it alone.
Do I need engine management with a TGV Deletes? Actually no. Having TGV deletes on a stock ECU or aftermarket tune causes no issues. While it is always better to have a mod tuned for, this is one modification that could be performed with no future tuning if you so desire.
Should I reset my ECU after this mod? It is never a bad idea to perform an ECU reset after a mod. The traditional route is to disconnect the negative battery terminal, press the brake pedal for a few seconds to bleed the system of charge, and reattach. Some use the more advanced Vishnu Reset.
