As long as the holes are filled and/or welded shut, that's correct, just pull it all out.

Wow now Im really confused. Heres my issue. My cel light came up (p2016) when I cracked the sensor getting at the banjo bolt in April. My only car so I silicone it and it seem to run fine no idle issues or things of that nature. Erased it with my reader. Today it comes back on. Again no notiable idle/roughness. I dont need any deletes. How difficult is it to change out the sensor itself. I dont see any write up about it. Does it make any difference if driving it with the cel on or off? Seen something about pulling the sensors and just getting it ''tuned''? Im new so feel free to flame. Excellent site though. Keep up the good work people. 05 OBXT 93k stock..

I'm in the exact same boat. I installed an UP and must have done something wrong as I have P2016 reading now (no other codes). However, contrary to the Sticky, my tuner says the TGV motor runs independently from the sensor, i.e. it runs on a open loop. This means the sensor acts ONLY as a warning flag to identify a failed TGV motor. Inversely, the bad sensor DOES NOT have any affect of the functionality of the actual TGV motor.

To support this, I've had the code for a week, thinking it was the typical missing UP EGT sensor code, and the car has run fine during all driving conditions, i.e. no limp mode. However, the tuner does seem to suspect that this open loop function may not exist on certain newer 2007+ Subaru models, hence the winding spring installation. In newer Subarus, there's no winding to install sort of feature.

Let me end this by, no, I'm no expert. Unibomber may very well come in and correct me, but with this code, my car still runs fine. I will be fixing it soon.

(2005 WRX, stage 2, TBE and UP)

You got the code meaning something is more then likely broken or failing. I had the code a while back after doing an inlet install. Code went away and never came back but the car never really seemed to be running right.
Finally got around to doing the deletes and the car immediately started better and just felt better. I am now getting a tune for them.

Should be same.

I am doing this now and was initially gonna leave rod and motor/sensors in. But then I realized I would be pissed if I got em all back together and code was still throw due to me lousing up the reinstall. Filling holes seem more logical.

Gonna plug em with special whale sperm and toenail clippings and call it a day.

Or tap and fill em with bolt and some JB.

Crap. I wish I'd read this when I had my manifold in pieces... I would have definitely put in the work at that point. Nice write-up, Ron.

speaking from experience, dont use JB weld.

i got a set from a friend who got them from someone else on here, and i ran on my car for 6+ months til i pulled them to install my new manifold. the jb weld was literally loose and spinning in the rod holes.

i tapped and installed allen head bolts. i did have to use 2 different lengths, but i havent had a problem since.

Great Write Up, this sounds like it would be pretty straight forward. I have a 2006 STi, anyone know what JDM spacers I would need so that they are compatible?

My car will be able to be down for two weeks so I'd like to do this while I can.

removing TGV's will cause you to fail SAFETY (most states) but not emissions. You'll fail SAFETY DUE TO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT unless if you turn it off with AP or Tactrix.

- An NO it will not effect your HUGE turbo ... removing them an porting an polishing your intake manifold/tgv housings will give you some improvement however.

You have to remove the CEL otherwise the car will be thrown into limp mode, so that's a given.
