Sorry if this is in the wrong section.
So this coming Tuesday I'm going to to be installing KOOKS LT headers, catless mids, and the SLP LM 1 system. I know im gonna get a CEL for the mid pipes being catless so how can I get rid of the CEL without having to buy a tuner?

Maybe antifoulers....tuner is the best option. I want a soundclip of your exhaust when your done. I have slp with jba shorties...adding the kooks in a few weeks

You can try the anti-foulers but I'm telling you there is a large chance they will not work. I have the anti foulers on my 2012 road and track with the jba catless mids. I went codeless for 80-100 miles...then threw codes every time I started the car after clearing them with the tuner. Checked for leaks and bad sensors...everything was fine. Talked to our buddy who is an SRT engineer and he said the computers on the new chargers are so good it's nearly impossible to "fool" them.

I had the rear 02s switched off by Johan but that's a temporary fix. The car runs great, nice gains up high and down low. But I will NOT pass smog. I'm still searching for a fix.

Hemi31 referred me to one of arrington's tuners. He reviewed my tune file and he said he had no idea why the car was throwing codes. He said with the new software the car's emissions settings need to be suppressed in 2-3 areas instead of the standard 1 area. He asked me to send in my PCM and trinity but that's not an option for me. He then asked me to buy the Arrington tuner, which is a waste of 400 bucks. He was very helpful and extremely professional/polite. But he could not find a fix. Let me know if you discover something as I am still searching.

How do antifoulers work?
And I will be adding a few videos of the exhaust. WOT, open headers, before and after, ect.

The antifoulers place the o2's out of the exhaust stream so they don't read correctly.

i could be completely wrong here but i think i read some where on here that some one said to place stainless steel wool in the antifoulers and that would help clear the code without turning them off with a tuner.

I could not find stainless steel wool anywhere! Steel wool for days, but no stainless steel wool. Every store I went in and asked...I got the "you're crazy" look.

So is it better to get a straight or angled antifouler? I would imag8ne the angled would be better.

Based on the Kooks midpipes I would say straight

So what's the process of adding these? Just screw the antifoulers into the mid pipe and then screw in the o2 sensor into the fouler? How do you do the thing with the stainless steel wool?

Do you think these would be sufficient? The "core" of the spacer is like a mini catalytic converter. I may try these. $69 from amazon for 2.
