Intermediate Pipes ?

If I was to remove my hi-flow cats and run a set of Kooks Intermediate Pipes would a CEL show up?

If the Camaros are like the Mustangs, running no cats without it tuned out will throw a CEL.

Are you tuned right now? If not, you WILL throw a CEL eventually. If you're not, how are you not throwing a code right now?

No tune, not til this Tuesday. I ordered a SCT 3400 from Jannetty. I just installed 1-7/8 LT with hi-flow cats over the weekend. I only drove maybe 8 miles yesterday and no issues. Just a little too quiet for my liking.

Drove the shit out of mine for 2-3wks before I got it tuned and never threw a CEL. That was with off road pipes. Some get it immediately, while some have driven for hundreds of miles before throwing it. The point is, eventually, you WILL THROW A CEL. Ted will most definitely turn off your rear O2 sensors in his tune, so there's no worries about a CEL at all. Run whatever connection pipes you want.
