Get rid of CEL with UTEC

does any one know step by step how to get rid of the cel when you install a txs uppipe, and turbo back exhaust with the catless race pipe? How do you change the codes and all that?

It's under special paramenters in the map edit mode.

The 2 most repeated things I have to say are now in my sig to save typing an extra 5,000 characters a day:

*** DO NOT upgrade your intake until you upgrade your injectors ***
&
*** DO NOT raise boost until that ugly cat in your uppipe is gone ***

No problem, just remember it removes any CEL and you need to check it often to make sure no other reason codes are showing.

Kobi,
I thought I read somewhere that the UTEC can block certain CEL's (i.e. faulty cats b/c there are no cats) but still have the CEL come on if something else goes wrong???

the code stays in the factory pcm, but the utec interrrupts the signal to the CEL in the dash. the code/freeze frame data stays in memory, and can be accessed through the obdII diag port...with a scanner. if i remember right, the utec cuts the cel off completely, or flashes it when knock is detected, or works normal.....one of the three. dont think it blocks certain codes, either all or none.....

It doesn't block certain codes, it blocks them all. Only flashes with Engine Det (Knock). They are working on a new Code that will only eliminate certain OBDII codes.
