    Hello to all,

    I was thinking about replacing my '98 Cobra's stock H-pipe with a Catted X-pipe. My question is am I going to have problems with the O2 sensors triggering a check engine light? And if so what should I do about it? I do not want to have the light on all the time. Thanks in advance.

    If you are getting a catted mid-pipe you shouldn't set off a MIL(malfunction indicator light). If you get off road pipe then it would set off the mil and you would need mil elimnators or turn it off with a chip. Hope this helps. Happy modding! :nice:

    Hey 20Cobra01,

    Thanks for the info. I was going with a catted x-pipe so I am glad to hear that I won't have to worry about the check engine light.

    Had a Bassani X w/ cats on my '98 GT - no light (same emissions as Cobra).

    Put an offroad X (BBK) on, had nothing but problems with the Casper MIL eliminators, got chip reflashed w/ O2 monitors turned off - no problems.

    Casper says it's the 1998 'puter.

    My friend got and O/R X with Dallas mustang mils on his 98 cobra and it still set of his CE light. But then it just turned off and doesnt set it off anymore.
