Extraordinarily unlikely plugging the line caused a CEL/limp..like others have said pull the codes or take it to the dealer/indy if you don't have a way to do it.

not related. and no the dealership more than likely will not check to see if you did the golf tee mod or not so i wouldnt even worry about putting it back to stock before you take it in

Just unplug the electrical connector under the driver taillight cover in trunk. This provides power to the exhaust flap and accomplishes same thing.

Send a message via AIM to VSmotorsports
non related issue, only time you would see anything related to it is when you read the codes (no lights will show)

As others have said. Btw time to start saving for a proper exhaust. The golf tee mod is a waste of time IMO
