    Exclamation Help!

    My check engine light comes on when I take the silencer out of my exaust. Is there any way to turn it off without replacing the silencer. I love the sound and performance difference with it out, but is it ok to drive with the CEL on? Any advice is great, thanks

    That won't fix that the car is running on safety mode though and only getting like 6 pounds of boost. Is there another way to trick the computer? Thanks
