Hello everyone!
I am thinking about installing a non catted x-pipe on my 96 Mustang GT along with the MIL eliminators. Now, I live in California where I can't have that on to pass smog, so I was just going to uninstall the x-pipe every 2 years and smog it and then just re-install it but my question is, will I have any CEL lights that come on after I install the stock h-pipe with all the cats again?
Sorry, I'm still kind of new to working on cars and what not. If anyone is in the sam situation I am, I would love to here how you deal with it! :D

You should be fine, if anything shows up then just unplug the battery for about 15 minutes, that will reset the system. After that it will see that it has the cats back on and shouldn't throw any codes... I'm in Cali also (Sacramento) and within the next month want to get an O/R Prochamber, so i'm in the same boat as you.

No you won't, I just went through this like 2 months ago. I had an off road x pipe on and then I put on the stock one with cats and everything was fine no cel or anything. Just remember to disconnect the batt and to run the car a few hours after puttin the midpipe on
