16 codes after header install?

I recently put tsp lts on my camaro and afterwards I checked the codes at the local parts store and I had 16 codes! Is that right? I mean they all had something to do with SENSOR #2 which was deleted with the install. So my question is should I be worried?

If yu are not worried about your warranty get it tuned by a good tuner, those codes will be gone.

You need to have a tuner remove those sensors. Otherwise those codes will stay.

I doubt they all came from your header install. Id bet you had several of those in your computer's history before the CEL would come on.
If you did the air and egr delete, you'd have more than just the rear O2s throw a code.

Just do the spark plug defouler trick, and you don't have to tune out the sensors, and the computer won't put the engine into starvation mode. Everything will be fine. And for less than $5.

Something that DOESN'T work on our cars . Been fighting that fight for over a year.
After header install and completing a couple "drive cycles" the light will trun on.

You have to use two defoulers per side. You drill one out with a half inch drill bit, and the sensor goes in that one. You screw another one onto the end of that, and that defouler goes into the exhaust. It works. Don't drill out all the way to the end, just make it so that the end of the sensor basically touches the bottom of the drilled out hole in the first defouler. Usually it doesn't work because you did it wrong.

The plug itself doesn't look that bad. It does look like you have some oil on the threads though.

100% how I did it .
Worked on my 2 previous cars .
The key word in my last post was "drive cycles" as per GM to get all sensors ready

A defouler is basically a threaded socked originally designed to screw into the spark plug hole and then screw the spark plug into that in order to keep the plug from fouling. They are also now used to trick the rear O2 sensors from throwing a code for those that do not get a tune after installing LTs. Since you are getting a tune, your tuner will turn off the rear two sensors so, you won't have that issue.
