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
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.
