    I've read the threads on the SAS removal (and appreciate the great help it's been), but I wanted to double check the range of the resistors. I threw my multimeter on the SAS valve and the whatchamacallit up at the front that goes to the canister and I got roughly 19 ohms and 26 ohms (or thereabouts).

    In all the threads I've read, people are using 20 kOhms to 22kOhms (20,000 - 22,000). Is my multimeter off, or is the resistor value up in that range due to increased resistance when operating, or other?

    Thank you for the time and help.

    If you have a TuneECU cable, you can disable SAS. No lights / error codes will be thrown.

    Higher resistance means less current, this means you can use a lower wattage resistor. I use 22k 0.25 watt and works fine.

    Here for reals.
    So does that mean remove all the equipment, turn off the SAS and don't install a resistor? Is there also an "on/off" for the charcoal canister?
