Go to a tuner (i can recommend big fish) and get the secondary air system disabled and fault codes deactivated. You can even remove the whole system. You can buy the requires block off plates from the USA.

Found them,bit of a stretch to be fair. Is this something any tuner should be able to do ?
Might be an option if the 'proper' fix proves to be mega expensive ! Anyone know a decent tuner nearer to west Lancs ?
