    Hi everyone. Im interested in getting a catted x-pipe for my 96 gt, most likely an SLP. Am I correct that if it is catted it will not cause my CEL to come on or do I still need mils?

    its a good chance you will still need the Mils...my Bassani Cat X still triggered the CEL so i had to get the MILS.

    it happens alot....thats why most who sell them will still suggest getting mils. I only went with the catted X because they will still get on the ground and look here in NJ at random traffic stops. i'd like to have LT's and no cats....maybe i should move to Florida.
