    CEL oni ma... no big issue... just do like how I did lah. Any of ur fren who wanna erase CEL also can look for u ma.. u charge them RM20... lol... Market price is RM50...

    It wont brings and effect if u stick with stock exhaust with aftermarket header. Just go to visit wei yip @ Puchong... u can pm him.. his nick is "kweng85" I guess... with a white colour car avatar. From header to muffler less than RM1k... cheap~~ lolzzz

    Recently just knew that there is a way to eliminate CEL.. its a very simple method.

    Once we fabricated a new header/extractor, it will increase the air flow... alot. Thus, O2 sensor will sense something unusual happened because of the strong air flow...

    So we will need something call "o2 sensor shield".. with this shield installed, the air flow wont blow/pass thru the o2sensor directly and thus no more CEL... O2sensor still functioning as it reads the tempreature and not air flow speed...

    That's wat the exhaust shop guy told me lah... he told me 101% will solve CEL issue.

    This guy's workshop located in USJ 1...
    I will send mine to install the o2sensor shield in this week.. so mengking... lol.. u can save the hassle to buy OBD2 from ebay liau. =D

    I guess the issue is with the O2 sensor... but if u could find a plug n play cat.. then for sure the CEL issue wont happen. They did extensive RnD liau before mass produce.. I think la.. lol
