    Readiness and BB flash

    Hi

    Anyone knows if Shivs stage1 disables the cel for cattless DPs?

    And does you still have "readiness" if the car is checked via obdii?

    No, none of Shiv's stages disable cat codes.
    It is easy to check this in Tunerpro under toggles, dignostic codes, after you apply stage X patch to the bin selected.
    About the readiness, i don't know.

    The check engine light is not directly related to readiness monitors, or else it would be on whenever the car is going through warmup or after a new battery is installed. That being said, I could imagine that specific trouble codes may prevent the car from becoming "ready", but to my understanding it's separate subsystems.

    Bump for anyone who knows more about readiness than me.

    1) Anyone knows if Shivs stage1 disables the cel for cattless DPs?

    No. As far as I know he does not. He has created a video on youtube video for disabling diagnostic codes, so as stated above you should be able to verify the CEL is not disabled. He did a one-off fuel flash for me on older software and asked if I wanted it disabled (I said no), and I believe all the Off The Shelf Maps do not mess with it.

    2) And does you still have "readiness" if the car is checked via obdii?

    If you have catless DP's or High Flow Cats that throw the CEL then you will need a DP fix to get readiness and likely pass an OBDII type test depending on your country/states test. If you have a DP fix, then yes it is possible for all of the cars systems to show readiness.

    I use this $16 tool to show the readiness states of all the systems on my 335: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o03_s00_i00

    "The description shows: Works with most OBD-II compliant U.S., European and Asian vehicles (OBD-II is standard on all cars sold in U.S. post-1996)"

    and:

    "This code reader reviews the emission readiness status of OBD monitors..."

    Is there no way to have your readiness ALWAYS show as complete when your emissions related codes are disabled?
    That in itself would be worth it to get the BB flash...
    I'd love to get rid of the hassle of installing/uninstalling a dpfix everything an e-test is needed.
