Howdy Everyone.
I just bought my first mustang, '99 GT. It has already had some mods done to it, although to what exact extint I am not sure yet? Anyway I do have a question I would sure love an answer to! The check engine light has come on so I took it down to the ford dealer and had them run a diagnostic on it and all it came up as was "no catalytic converters" which I already knew. So to finally get to my ? is, how do I get the light to get turned off so if another problem shows up I will know about it?? The one mod I do know for sure is that it has an X pipe exhaust on it(so the dealer says) If you need any other info other than what I have given just let me know so as to make answering my question easier. Thanks in advance

You just need to install MIL eliminators cheap easy to install, plug inline to the O2 sensors. They duplicate the reading that you would get with catalytic converters. Or reinstall Cats,

I agree the cheapest way is to go with the MIL Eliminators. They run around where i live 59.99. If you plan on going with a Chip, you can let the shop thats tuning your chip know you have no cats, and they will turn the light off for you. What i went with was the Diablo Sport Predator Tuner. Its a hand held tuner... kinda like a gameboy for cars. You can tune anything you want pretty much on the car, Air Fuel Ratio, Spark Advance, Rev and Speed limiters, and other things like that. I picked mine up from FoxPerformance.com
for 299.99, shipping included.

Let me know if you need any other info.

P.S. and Offroad Xpipe is a nice mod to have already installed. Hopefully where you live there is not Gas Emission Inspection.

Thanks alot for your input AZ and Carguy.:thumbup We live in miss. and they dont do an emissions test but we are planning on moving back to texas in a cpl yrs and I know I will have to have the cats on to pass the vehicle inspection there. I stopped by an exhaust pro place yesterday and they told me the best thing to do was to get another X pipe with cats beacuse of the lack of space to just add cats, told me it would run around $800 to$1000:shocked: so I think for now I will go with the MIL eliminators. Once again thanks guys.
