We answered in the other thread. You will definitely get a CEL unless the TP you bought has a simulator built-in.

Mine didn't, but I had the extension specially set up, and never saw another CEL (caused by the removal of the cat) again.

Old thread but thought I could help out as its a common problem.

Ultimate Racing sells a 3'' testpipe with cel fix for 75.00.. (built in anti-fouler) its hard to go wrong if you can find one (lancershop.com has them)

You can build your anti foulers very easily so the 02 sensor reads further away from the exhaust... just search it

Whoa, don't ever spend that much for a CEL fix. It's like a $5 fix at the auto parts store...

75 for the test pipe itself including the fix is a great price.
