Test pipe??

hey guys im stuck between the idea for exhaust cut outs or just a test pipe and a catback. i know ill get more gains from the exhaust cut out and doing both either way would throw a CEL. My friend got me a test pipe for my lude, he put one on his never threw a CEL, now that confuses me because u figure it would, and he didnt use spark plug defoulers or anything he just put the O2 sensor in and it was good. What are my chances of throwing a check engine light with the test pipe? has anyone done a test pipe and catback without doin the header. any info helps

thanks
orbs

Re: Test pipe??

A test pipe is never a good idea. They make the car sound tinny and crap, not to mention all the toxic hydrocarbons that they don't filter out of the air. Have you ever followed a car with no cat? You can hardly breathe it's that bad, especially if the car is running rich.

Seriously, for the 0.5-1.5hp gain of a test pipe, it's just not worth it. Get a high flow cat if you're that worried.

Re: Test pipe??

okay... NOPE. if your that far up someones tail where you can smell the exhaust your too close. and its the muffler that makes most of the sound you hear. and fines... LMAO. what equip violations... can always be fought. cops give you a ticket for it cause they can... if you do get one you probably woke them up from sleeping on the side of the road. all those doughnuts make you tired you know LOL>

Re: Test pipe??

yeah i say do the spark pug fouler mod or watever. Thats what Im planning on doing next. Here in fl i dont have to worry about emissions either. If i dont like the sound of a $15 test pipe, I would just buy a $65 magnaflow from ebay and throw that one on next.

Re: Test pipe??

IMO...get a test pipe or straight if you have backup meaning like in my situation I have a straight thnx to BUSTR BUILT PERFORMANCE and I like the rumbling sound of it even at low RPM. I'll admit that i got a handful of tickets bc of it and that's why it's good to know the chief of the 109pct and lieutenant of the 107pct!!!.

So if you can't get ur tickets cleared then I'd suggest other alternatives!!!
