? about tuning

i have a 5th gen turbocharged prelude. right now my iacv has been giving me some problems even after cleaning. well what i was wondering is that right now i have a greddy e-manage and i have a p72 that i'm gonna get chipped and tuned for my car. is it possible to tune out the iacv and the egr without throwing any cels or giving my car problems?

good luck with that. Tuning it out takes a ****load of work and its going to run even worse than it was. how do you know its the IACV? When did the problems start occuring? what did you do prior to the problems? are you getting a CEL code? Part of going fast is understanding the parts that operate your car so just deleting stuff without knowing the effects is going to cause you a lot of head ache.

why are you running emanage and a p72? Hopefully you will be removing the emanage and tuning with the proper OBD1 engine management.
