Yes the large diameter DP will throw a CEL (in most cases), a tune will rectify that. If you have any other exhaust mods you want to do, have them done and then have your DME sent out. I hear most...

+1, best answer imho. If OP meant track as autox, then do not even touch mods yet as it will put you in a whole new class. I would start with basic maintenance prep and some decent track tires for...
