What makes the Gen 1 (V54) Bypass Kit different than the Gen 1 (V36) Bypass Kit? In 2008 there was an update made to the computer programming that affected SAIS operations. With this change a new module had to be engineered requiring two harnesses; installing at both the Air Intake Temperature (IAT) sensor and the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor. Our competitors have not taken this update into consideration with their products. That said, if you were to install a competitor’s kit or Gen 1 (V36) on a model year ’08 or newer, you would get the error code P011B – Temperature Correlation Error.
