this is of probably no help at all... but when alot of the tuners do an SIA delete, usually a tune/flash comes with it. So somehow they delete it out of the ECU. And isnt part of the cold start function to run rich until everything hits temp? Some one else should chime in
It should speak for itself

In addition to the tune you need to get resistors so the ECU does not show the pump and relay or solenoid as open or shorted circuits. They make them that have factory connectors and plug right in. ECU also looks for different flow across Maf so you will get an insufficient flow code without a chip.
It's not how fast you go. It's how well you go fast.

Confirming with everyone else. VCDS will not remove the SAI codes. A custom tune will, maybe, if you pick the right one.

I have my SAI blocked off and pump removed. I roll a continuous CEL, booyahh.

I merely ignored my SAI CEL for about 9 years. Then one day, it dissappeared! Baby Jesus rejoices! And the CEL still works, the bulb didn't even burn out, I checked. Maybe I finally won that staring contest with my Mk3!
