Off-road x pipe no service engine light

Hey guys. So already had an x pipe installed a while back but went cat less 2 weeks ago and never got a check engine light. Not complaining but doesn't running no cats usually cause a light to pop up?
Anything i should be worried about?
No tune or mil elinimators installed.

If you scan for trouble codes, there is likely one or two warning of the environmental disaster that your car is causing.

There still may be codes even though the CEL is not lit.
But, yes, you would expect that the light would be on by now.

Is it possible that a previous owner could have possibly turned off the rear O2 sensors with a tune, and you are not aware of it?

That may be possible. Have had this car 4 years now. Purchased from a dealer. Only mod it had was flowmasters at the time.
Not complaining tho haha 😁

Crazy thing is I installed a cheap flowtech x-pipe on my old gt and never got a cel. Swapped to a basanni x-pipe and cel pop on around 100 miles. Tried off road h-pipe no cel doesnt make sense.

The same exact thing has happened to me. I had my UPR o/r x pipe installed about 4 months back, and till this day, i still don't have a check engine light on. I didn't install mil eliminators.
