    best O2 extenders for CEL

    Will be installing my fullrace catted downpipes this coming weekend and trying to get something on the way to avoid throwing a CEL. What are you guys using if anything? From what i've heard most tuners wont clear any codes from being thrown caused by emission mods. Any help would be appreciated.

    This is the one most guys have tried with reasonably good luck. You will still occasionally see a CEL, but just clear it.

    I actually have a set myself, for the day I must change my tune and if my tuner refuses to turn off my CEL.

    As I do not live in the US, US Emission Laws do not apply here. So far my tuner has been okay with turning off my CEL.

    @Boostking I have been wondering if the SCT Tuning Software can still turn off the CEL or has SCT been forced to remove that capability?

    The SPD units seem to have a 100% success rate, much better than vibrant.

    Vibrant were very hit and miss for me, I would try the SPD ones first.

    Is this also for the software that Tuner's get? The reason I ask, not ALL purchasers are subject to emission laws.

    Such as people not living in the US and Off-Road racers.

    I looked at the SPD defoulers but it doesnt give much of a description. They look like spark plug defoulers that have SPD on them. Are they hollow?

    Yeah they are. I did some research on them before I bought the pipes and yeah I would say they are the same thing. My downpipes just came with them.

    Again, I don't know what's different about them, but they seem to be 100% effective. There are a LOT of folks using them on various ecoboost Facebook groups. The BCB fanboys push SPD products really hard, so many of the eco modders, especially in the BCB groups, are running them. I have yet to see a single report of CEL issues with the SPD "O2 extenders".
