Well the light won't go on, but an OBDII will still pick up those codes.

Really? I remember hearing that it will just turn the light off for those two codes not clear them. I thought I even called Cobb to ask them that question. But I guess I was wrong. Props to the AccessPORT if it does that. Also Quack I see you are from my area, maybe I can get a ride in the 12 second wagon once it is completed

the CEL is illuminted when the sensors are outside the programmed range. the Cobb Stg2 (and above) rids the CELs by widening the parameters. SO, the OBDII systems will read "Ready" eventhough the cat's have been removed.

hoping to get into the 12's, but regardless it'll be the most modded wagon up here

maybe i should charge people for rides to make the $$$ back from the upgrade.

Correct me if im wrong, but im getting this vibe that none of you that have a complete aftermarket exhaust system have any cats.

So....what do you guys think about the Stromung Turboback exhaust?? I dunno, but I think im gonna have to go with them cause they are the only ones that offer a catted DP that i've heard good things about. Ok the thing is this.....I dont want problems with cops. So when they check for a cat under the car they can find one and I get let off easily. Now, I could go straight through with no cats and tell them that the resonator that the Borla has on the midpipe is a cat but that could be risky no? C'mon....I need people to convince me on this one.

or you can get a short DP, the Mad-dad 3CE ( http://www.daddysscp.com/cgi-bin/plu...ategory_Code=E ) and your cat back.

Or I could go with the primary section and catted secondary section of the stromung and then match it to the Borla exhaust....yea...that sounds plausible.

i have no cats and probably will only use the stock dp for show at testing. i dont like cats. especially with them all gone i seen a 3+ mpg increase on the same type of driving as before exhaust mods. i also have a 69 pontiac, of course it didnt come w/ them but my 78 plymouth did and its a wonder i havent gotten rid of it's.
