    I don't know where the problem is...I wired a 1M ohm resistor in and have no CEL. Still tuning the UTEC though, might have something to do with it.

    the mike- did you reset your ECU after you installed the resistor?? or did it go off by itself after awhile?

    Never reset it, I did the resistor mod with the uppipe off the car, so they went on at the same time. Hasn't come on yet, but if it does I'll let you know.

    I'm an idiot, I meant DOWNpipe. It was late when I posted.
    I still have the stock uppipe.

    Mereniuk,

    maybe you should try resetting the ecu then?

    I got my cel with 80km of losing my DP cat. Put the resistor in, pulled the neg terminal on the battery and haven't had a cel in 2000 km.

    the resistor works, and it only cost me 75 cents.

    Question

    Anyone here using the non-electronic (no soldering) CEL fix on their '04? If you've not tried it, I recommend you do because it is very easy to install and it definitely works on the '02 and '03.

    Question

    I just went to COBB's Stage 2 with a Perrin DP (and Perrin UP). No CEL yet, and I'm using the resistor fix. How long does it take for the CEL to come on for those of you w/ this problem???
    I just bought a STi!!!

    Love it!!!
