Default What plugs are these



Tryig to help a friend troubleshoot (i dont own an sti). Can't figure out what plugs these are. They're right in front of the passenger strut tower, the black piping is the FMIC piping

Any help appreciated

These were unplugged during an oil change for some reason and the car threw a CEL when started next. Turned off, unplugged battery for 20 min and let sit, plugged battery back in and no CEL after a 30 min drive home. I wasn't present for any of this but I'm 100% positive that these don't need to be unplugged for any reason, especially not for an oil change. The reasoning for unplugging them was "to get oil to flow to the turbo" when it was first started up

I'm pretty sure those are the plugs for the front O2 sensor and the BCS. Neither of which need to be disconnected to prime the turbo.

"Getting oil flow to the turbo" pre start is priming the turbo.

front O2 sensor.

plug had to be disconnected anywhere near your car.

Like I said, I didn't do the work and wasn't present for any of it

Glad to gear neither of these are critical to the car being "run" (started for ~10-20 seonds) but not driven. Much thanks, appreciate the quick responses
