Default new testpipe installed!?!

Just installed a evolution raceworks testpipe it has relieved any restrictions that might have been cause by the old cat. But just wondering if anyone else's testpipe rubs when your moving and in a turn?

Test pipe shouldn't move, if it is then your whole exhaust is moving which means you might have a broken exhaust hanger. Check the mount at the bottom of the down pipe.

Cool Test pipe/ check engine light/cat

Audi 2002 1.8t stick

Have a check engine light, bottom line.. Cat is bad have to replace.

Going to put in a test pipe from ECS tuning.com

Once i install test pipe. Will this take turn off the check engine light or
will it still be there because i installed a test pipe not a new Cat?

thanks

the TP will throw a code. search for the anti fouler trick.

It's 4:30 in the a.m. and I've been at work for almost 20 hours now, so I'm too lazy to look it up for you.

This topic has been cover extensively, so it shouldn't be too hard to find.
