Need an answer part 2

Just bought my upr o/r x with lm1 and I was wondering about the whole check engine light thing. What else do I need to prevent screwing up my car.

Do you have a tuner? If so then you can request a tune that shuts off the rear O2 sensors. Or you can buy MIL eliminators and shut it off that way.

I have mine tuned for it. I have a buddy who has the eliminators on his Cobra. Either way works just fine really.

I don't have a tuner but I might be getting one.. I'll probably go with the eliminators. How much are they?

I have both. The tune just turns off the rear o2s you wont pass inspection even if they dont check cats because you'll get a incomplete code since theyre turned off. Thats why you need to keep your stock midpipe. Dont sell it.

Ah the old mid pipe shuffle... its more of a pain in the nuts with the modulars since you have 4 O2s and the goddam passenger header to deal with.

Eh, its not THAT big of a pain. Ppl are always talking about cutting down sockets and special tool ideas etc... All you need is a 1/2" drive socket (I forget the size, its been forever), 1/2" drive universal, 1/2" drive extension and then an adapter for 1/2-3/8 or just a 1/2" drive ratchet. The 1/2" drive socket is deep enough to get a good bite but not too deep to not have enough room to work. Comes right out.

Actually the half inch deep is too long, its a 15mm short 1/2" socket paired with everything else you've
Mentioned. I've got my midpipe swaps down to about a half hour

It's really just whatever works. I kept getting wedged between the k-member and mid-pipe with the deep socket

Probably because we did it when his car had like 4,000 miles on it back in 2005. New motor mounts vs 13 yr old motor mounts lol.

It also depends where you live. Where I love they don't check emissions so I don't have a problem just running it in as long the engine light is not on

Actually it is depending on where you are located on the inspection thing and who you know.... It will pass the emissions part just fine but it will not pass the visual part where they look to see if its on there. I have mine tuned to clear the CEL and it passes with flying colors every time.

And with our cars you can make the eliminators for the rear O2 sensors fairly easy if you wanted too.

Good luck!
