judging from your mods I'm assuming you've got a full system. Did you remove the exhaust servo motor? if so that's your problem, either plug in back in or get the ivan servo eliminator. They also might be a DIY one someone here but I'm not sure.

only thing i did was disconnect the exhaust servo cables down by the mid pipe, the exhaust valve under the rear seat is still pluged up...

maybe the cables are binding causing an error...you need to remove the cables completely..it's a servo motor trying to adjust

I think in order to not get the error code, the cables have to be attached at both ends.

which is why I said maybe the un-connected end may be "BINDING" causing an error up front to the BOX...otherwise I agree....you need to know how servos work and from my Air Force days dealing with servos in Radio applications I can see this would cause a problem. ...remove at both ends not just one and report back.

starting to sound like a faulty servo motor, that or the connector is dirty or damaged.
