    alrighty, im a little bit of a DIY-er, but ive had my header on for a while (a generic meghan) and the check engine lights on for the o2 sensor/lack of a cat, but i was wondering, my buddies say if i get a test pipe and reset the code that will work? is this true? orrr what do i need to get the light to stay off???? thanks alotttt

    There ya go. Generally, a test pipe is a cat delete down-pipe on a turbo system. What your buddy is referring to on the tC is the s-pipe. Although you don't have to replace the OEM s-pipe with a header (except for the WR header that comes with it's own s-pipe), you will free up some backpressure with an aftermarket unit. Stay clear of Megan Racing products. They are cheap, poorly built, over-shore crap.

    Another option is to buy a CEL Eliminator from Weapon-R, I have one along w/ an Invidia Down-Pipe, DC Sport 4-1 Header and Tanabe Medallion Concept G Exhaust and NO CEL's! :)
