Downpipe + Stage 1 Tune?

Hey guys, got a few questions for my f30 320i.. I want to install a catted downpipe, yet I'm aware that the CEL goes on so I plan on getting a stage 1 tune as well.. Is it necessary to buy any other parts for my car when installing the tune and catted dp?

Nope! You don't need anything else. Don't know what tune you're going with, but Dinan piggybacks will not fix a CEL.

Catted downpipe for me didn't cause a CEL.

Don't just take that statement and run with it. Not getting a CEL is great, but it's not common. Most people get a CEL unless they have a high flow catted downpipe, but even some of those throw CEL's. Be prepared to look at a CEL until you get the tune if you install a DP.

Just don't want you to be disappointed!

The best info you can get on this subject would be in the engine specific forum, not the general forum. Check it out.
