Uppipe Info Needed

I plan on replacing my turbo soon and when i do so im going to replace my stock uppipe with an aftermarket one. Ive been looking at the Perrin, and i think it seems to be a good one. Anybody have any experience with it? Also, the Perrrin says it includes an EGT sensor bypass that will trip no CEL, is this going to be correct? I appreciate the help.

Any aftermarket up-pipe is greater than stock. As for the EGT sensor just remove it and get the splicer to disable the CEL, found at radio shack 2.2 KOHMS

Personally its your preference, but I would just get something that's cheaper if you can. You don't have to necessarily go with Perrin.

But if the sensor is bypased then i wont need to get the resistor, right? Also i have Cobb AP so if it does throw any CEL's then ill be able to clear them. Does anybody know the code that the EGT might throw?

I'm sure thier sensor bypass is the same as just adding a resistor.

thanks for the codes man. ive never had to clear a code with my AP so when my CEL comes on i just plug up my AP and use it to clear the code? Seems easy and convenient.

Sorry I was in a rush before. My EGT sensor is sitting in my stock UP in the basement, and those were the CELs I threw (one by one).
