Check engine light

Hello first time posting and hoping you guys can help me out.

I've recently installed BBK Long Tube Header and BBK Off road x pipe and now Im getting check engine light.

Anyone know how to fix this? I've deleted the codes repeatedly and it still comes on.

Do you have a tune? If you removed cats you will get a CEL unless you have a tune for the off road pipes

Unless you want to look at a CEL forever and have your car think it has cats and is still seeing a ton of un used fuel. I could be wrong but that will probably cause your car to run lean. I'd venture to say it's not safe to drive that way. The tune will trick your car into thinking the O2 sensors are doing what they should. Keeping the fuel levels correct. Right now it thinks there are cats and it's seeing a ton of fuel as if it's rich.

I was thinking about getting MIL eliminators but will that fix the rough idle problem? Or do I have to get it tuned to fix the prpblem.
