SCT iTSX Wireless Tuner

I was on American Muscle's website and ran across this tuner that I really want. I've just removed my cats from my 2007 Mustang GT and the inevitable check engine light popped on the next day. I know that some tuners can clear this out and my original plan was to get MIL eliminators but I've heard that when you go to get emissions done you'll fail for "readiness." It's like the car will never get ready. What I'm wondering is if anyone knows if this programmer will allow me to pass emissions. As you can probably tell I've never had a tuner so I have no experience with them so I'm learning what I can before I get anything.

The tuner no, you will fail because the rears are turn off, mil eliminators should work cause they send a false signal

Re: SCT iTSX Wireless Tuner

A tuner will not help you pass emissions inspection by turning off the cel you will still fail for readiness. what you could try and I have done this in the past at it works is the spark plug anti fouler trick. Most auto parts stores carry whats called plug anti foulers they are used on old engines that tend to burn a lot of oil and foul plugs. they come 2 to a pack you will need both for one o2 sensor you take one of the foulers and drill out the small hole to like a 1/2" hole so you can screw your o2 sensor into it then screw the
un moddified fouler onto the modded fouler and screw the hole shooting match back into your exh. sys the small hole in the fouler limits the amount of exhaust gas's that get to the sensor so it tricks the sensor into thinking there is a cat in frount of it works good but not perfect will throw a cel from time to time for rear o2 but should take a few weeks depending on how much you drive. do a google search for more info. Plus at around $10 for a pack of 2 its cheep

Hmm, that sounds like a good option. I plan on buying the MIL eliminators anyway so if that doesn't work I'll definitely try that. I appreciate the info.

dPayne003,

I highly recommend the iTSX, we've had great feedback on this device! Unfortunately when running no cats it becomes difficult to pass emissions. We can turn the sensors off so that the light doesn't bother you, however like you said the sensors will show up "Not Ready". Your best bet may be to try a o2 deflower like listed above, that will send a false signal while keeping the sensors on (Very similar to the MIL eliminator, unfortunately the MILs can only be used on 99-04).

I hope this helps, Let me know if you have any questions!

- Dan

Thanks Dan, I've decided to get high flow cats to avoid this whole problem but I'm still gonna get the iTSX in the near future. I'm pretty excited about it.

I ordered the high flow cats from American muscle today. Can you tell me if it's gonna be anywhere close to the sound? I love the throaty sound it has now with no cats.
