You will not set off the check engine light. There are no O2 sensors on a diesel like a gas engine.

I aggree as well. Although getting a muffler shop to remove the cat maybe hard to do.

I suggest you save some money and find a buddy with a welder and do it yourself.


Oh and OBD II is On Board Diagnostics 2nd generation. Anything prior to 96 and late 95 had OBD I which is On Board Diagnostics 1st generation.

Keep the cat in case of inspections and get a cat delete pipe for 50 bucks or so. No welding. DIY
