I know this might sound stupid, but I am new to this whole thing..... I do audio installs for cars, nothing mechanical(except basic stuff, tire swap, brakes, calipers, braks pad, spark plug changes, etc...).... until now
    It is safe to drive a car to the tuner after some mods are done. Downpipe/uppipe/EBCS is all safe to drive to the tuner, just stay out of boost and drive like a grandma.

    Run a line from the compressor to the actuator; that will limit your car to wastegate pressure. Install the BCS in the shop parking lot (it's a 10 minute install anyway).

    The guy i bought my car from i dont think got a tune after he put in the CAI and CBE. I haven't been driving the car too often because of that. All i need to do is order a TMIC and a DP which i will probably do tonight. already got the UP and EBCS waiting to be put in. Plus Cobb's only like 45 minutes north of me.

    The only ebay catback i can vouch for is the SR*S type RE (or the N1). I had it on my 05 for a little over a year. Sounded great after it broke in and fit well. had to trim a heat shield but other than that it was fine. The re is a quiter version and the N1 is just that.

    So i installed my uppipe and downpipe today, save the EBCS for when i get to cobb next weekend. My car sounds amazing, its got a deeper exhaust note and its hell of a lot louder. Loving it, wish i took a before and after video. My CEL is on now is it because the EGT Bung isnt plugged in in the spot underneath the 02 Sensor? Is the only fix for this the resistor trick, if so how do i do it?

    Follow where the EGT sensor mounts to the passenger strut tower. That's where you put the resistor.

    Should I just try to stick it in there or put solder on it to make sure it never moves.

    You could always zip tie it in place. That's what most do.

    I got the car tuned but it was street tuned and if I were to guess I would estimate 300 WHP.

    On Friday it ran a 13.34 quarter mile time @103.9 mph at Great Lakes Dragaway
