I was going to say the same thing. The car does that for a reason, not because it was a problem. Now if you have no cats I guess it's not necessary.I still get the initial start high idle- it's there for emissions reasons I think. It's weird that it disappeared for you...
Per the service manual, both sensors have the same electronic scaling for pressure and temperature, thus should work in the same manner as each other.For any of you guys with a tune, I'd be weary about this "upgrade" until its been tested by a shop(or the shop where you got your tune from) that has access to the ECU's reading other than depending on a mobile device app. Just because it "feels" better doesn't mean its safe to use long term.
A tune resolved all the issues and added needed power for me.
Well, I still have the cat in the dp, and I was accustomed to the high idle at startup since this is my second VT, and didn't mind it. Now the question is, is the lack of initial high idle bad, or not? If it's just for emissions, then I would venture that it isn't. I also have the clutch switch disconnected, and have noticed that the exhaust is "burblier" on trail throttle now.I was going to say the same thing.

Did you try reinstalling the old sensor and see if the cold start up comes back? Of course you have to let the engine get cold again but I'm curious if it's actually the sensor causing it.Has the cold start high idle disappeared for anyone else, particularly with the $19 sensor? Car still feels smoother overall, so far so good.
