Not sure, but you should still have that egt probe on even a bone stock car. Look toward the windshield of the passenger side engine bay mounted high there should be a few electrical connectors. egt is Gray and has a cord that goes down to plug in to that thread.

The stock UP has an EGT sensor in it, so what you do is put that in the new UP and research what value resistor you need to get from radio shack to prevent the inevitable EGT code. Look for EGT resistor fix. It's a $.29 part

That being said you can, always take the UP to a hardware store and find a bolt that fits the bung, but you'll still need the resistor fix.

BTW, I don't recommend installing that in an '02 without EM, as it can cause "bad things" to happen to piston #3



Research, then mod....

thanks guys i just didnt think i did becuase i have no gauges. and i already read up on the resistor needed could i also do that for the 02 sensor?? (I already have a CEL from no cat in the down pipe lol) if not no biggy EM will clear that up anyway im getting a cobb this weekend aswell if this one works. found another great deal on a local one. I thought the bad thing happened with #3 with an intake?? Damn this sh*ts getting hard to keep up with lol

Also my cars an 03 i dont think that makes a diff but i first made the account before going to pick up an 02 i was gunna buy to find out more before going to cali to buy it bottom line is i wasted a weekend of time and $$ driving out there for it to be a piece.. It looked good but you could clearly see the car wasnt cared for etc... so i bought a stock 03 instead

Flash it to stage 2 with the AP and it will be "all good". The performance gains are noticeable, and it will fix your o2 sensor code (assuming it's the downstream one) It will also prevent damage from running too lean with the catless UP. Have fun

fwiw, catless up pipes don't make cars run lean.
