Default 4 ALL you Stage 0 out their!

I've had the stage 0 installed about a 2-3 weeks now, I got a CEL light after driving it for about 80 miles. The CEL went away after 40 more miles.
I noticed when I get ON IT HARD now, It causes the CEL to flash and stay on everytime
Is there anything I can do to stop the CEL?
Sorry can't stop getting on it!...It's to hard to resist
Does anybody else have this problem?
Is there anything I can do?
Also, is this a problem?
Thanx Guys
Jimmy

two things to check:

plugs - make sure the coil pack things on each plug are on snugly, and that the wires coming into them are attached snugly.

pulley - while the underdrive pulley has worked well for many people, some of us have had issues with it. Try putting the stock pulley on and see if the problem goes away.

(I dont have stage zero, but I do have the vishnu upipe, and HAD the underdrive pulley)

Unfortunately, I've been plagued with up to 3 or 4 a day sometimes, and there is nothing to do about it but keep clearing them. As long as the car drives like nothing went wrong (and that's important, make sure it's driving fine), apparantly they're a side effect of the Unichip and according to Vishnu, we shouldn't worry.

Yeah, it's a pain in the ass, and as of right now, the only way to fix it is to remove the Unichip. Maybe Vishnu will come up with something in the future.

Vishnu has come up with a solution and I tested it in my car. However, it isn't in production yet. Call Shiv for more info because this is all I know about it.
