Catless Up-pipe / Catless Downpipe

I was wondering, when you switch to a Catless Up-pipe and Catless Downpipe, how rich I will be running ? Also, how exactly do you hookup a Air / Fuel Ratio gauge so I can keep tabs on this. I heard you just wire it into your O2 sensor, but I have performed a mechanical CEL FIX on my car and was thinking that if I was to wire it to my O2 sensor it would give me a false reading now considering I have already gave my O2 sensor a false reading to clear any CEL. Any Help is Appreciated
Thanks!!

How come you don't want to get it tuned? There are many ways to get tuned, expensive or cheap. ( COBB AP, ECUTEK, ETC)

I was thinking about just getting the ECU "Reflashed" pretty soon In like a week or 2, you think this would make a big improvement?

Yes, yes it will. The Cobb AP can give you all the info you need, through its live data.

Cheapest tuning route wasn't mentioned. OpenECU aka ROMraider. $75 cable, laptop, free software, tune. Depending on the tuner, it can cost anywhere between $25 and $150. It also has live logging.

I was just about to say that one. It's the cheapest assuming you've already got a laptop. If not, then just get an AP lol....

Kinda predictable when it comes to tuning options, I know. I used to run the UTEC but didn't like it since I couldn't understand how to tune it myself if needed. With OpenECU, I can see the curves and adjust them as needed. I can also disable ANY CEL I choose. For example, I'm getting ready to delete my TGVs and pass emissions with the car running rich. All I have to do is disable the P0172 for the rich code and P1086 through P1097 for the TGVs.

Yeah, if you don't have a laptop go for the Cobb AP. Unless you want to pick up a laptop, REMOVE Vista and install XP since the necessary programs have issues with Vista... Then again, Vista has issues with Vista.
