1.you shouldnt throw a cel with the stock egt bung in there. Dont leave that stock EGT probe in there, its dangerous. Find a screw to fit in there and put in a resistor. 2. your sound wont really change, you might hear the turbo spool faster, however youll notice your car spools way faster!

The probe at the end of the sensor can be blown off with the added exhaust flow and be sucked into the turbo.

thanks 04blkwrx, i'm impressed (seriously) that makes thing alot easier for all of us, i gutted my up, got a dp and cat back and my cel is on, i did the cel fix for the dp but it came back on again you'll have to wire in the resistor
