clear CEL without jb4?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey everyone, I want to put on my catless DP, but not with the JB4 (I've had both but felt like my car wasn't running as smooth as I wanted it to, and my car would stall once in a while which was annoying) Is there any other way to clear the CEL? I wish there was a catted DP for the n26 engine, but I can't seem to find one. Thanks!

I have read that something like this has worked for other makes.

ER has a catted downpipe for N26 now, but a member verified that it still throws a CEL. We need someone to try out that mini-cat-cel-fix above!

A lot of members also use OBD plug-ins. I believe with this you can clear the CEL with your cellphone

I used to use the Torque app for Android (free) and a generic ELM327 OBD2 Bluetooth adaptor (~$5). The light would come on a few times a week but only took a few seconds to clear via my phone. Much easier option than rigging some O2 simulator but requires frequent resets.

Reason why I would need a built-in solution like a working o2 spacer is in order to bring the car with a high flow catted DP into a service without a CEL. Obviously most can't have a JB4 installed when going in for a service. Would it be still loud enough for them to notice the car has an aftermarket DP?
