As for the "O2 sensor limit exceeded" and the "air mass sensor problem"
fault codes, they usually happen when there is a vacuum/boost leak i.e. a
torn hose or an Intercooler endcap that has a hole in it... BTDT...
And the check engine light might be caused by the chip upgrade you have in
your ECU....

Reply to me off-list and tell me where your chips do come from, this
usually happens when the wrong chip is in the ECU...
