Default CEL Code 546 with PDX Stage 2

Alright, I don't do much highway driving where I use the cruise control, but the three times that I have, I have gotten this CEL (high EGT, bank 1). Has anyone else ever had this? I have a egt gauge, and am running just shy of 1400 F at 65-70 MPH (@2750 RPH) when I get the light. Ideas?

Thanks,

Jason

Maybe they forgot to turn that cel code off. It happens and doesn't always show up immediately.

That's my guess. I sent them an email, but wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this first hand. I know the COBB software removes it. I am not worried, it's just an annoyance.

I don't have the ap yet but I'm planning to leave my cel fix for dp and upp. I'm not going to use the ap to remove the cel. I don't want a cel like this.

I wouldn't leave CEL fixes in when they're not needed. . . could mess with the way the accessecu technology defeats the CEL's. . ..

OP- is your EGT sensor still plugged in? They simply forgot to check that code, they should be able to send you a new map no problemo

I would just do the resistor mod and not worry about having a EGT sensor potentially eat the turbo.

I removed teh egt sensor when I gutted my up. I never had the problem with the Cobb map, so I am guessing they just forgot to remove it.
