NO!
Do not install 3.3 ohm resistors anywhere near your 02 or EGT sensor wiring. You have the values confused with the airbag light fix used when swapping seats, which uses 3.3 ohms.
When installing a catless uppipe and removing the factory EGT probe a 2.2K ohm resistor is used.
For a catless downpipe the "mechanical fix" is best if you don't want to cut wires and/or you have OBDII inspection in your state. Search in the 2.0 Turbo forum for the many threads on this topic.

Search for Downpipe FAQ and Uppipe FAQ and you will find your answers.

The basic rule of thumb is that you shouldn't do any mods to your car before you've researched the pros, cons, and results of the mods. It's easy to tell little to no research was done when you haven't come across the CEL fixes.

Research is for your own good.

the 3.3 ohm is just for the seats it has nothing to do with a CEL related to the exhaust.

there are airbags in the factory seats and The Car ''Knows" when you remove them.

Now. on to the exhaust, a 3.3kohm is close to a 2.2 kohM and might work, but isn't the commonly used value. it is nowhere near a 3.3ohm

-- if you confuse ohm with Kohm you will have damage

so let me get this straight
You come in, you ASK US FOR HELP, then you get pissed when we give it to you??? And then ream out the people trying to help you???


Ill tell you what, I have an EVEN BETTER cel fix, that requires no cutting, no electical work and has no chance of screwing anything up, and cost $10, takes 10 min to do.

But now, I am not telling your ignorant ass. There is a friggin search button, if you werent such a lazy douche you would have used it to begin with and saved us another braindead post

I've done my research, but sometimes things can get a little confusing, there are different fixes out there, and people usually explain how to do them as well, so it can be hard to know exactly which one to choose per application.

I'll be purchasing an AccessPort in the future, and from eltrouble's post is seems I won't need the resistor. Not sure if it'll fix the downpipe as well, but I'll do a search...lol.

lots of people pretend to know what they're doing...and they don't. it's how rumosr and such start. so you have to sorta look around and try to discern for yourself which you think would work and which would not work.

AP is definitely a great mod...albeit a bit pricey. and with cobbstage2 they clear the cat CEL light. i believe it's the p0420 or something like that, so it works. not sure if it'll work for EVERY cel light you'll encounter, but for the DP it should work.

another alternative...if you're not going to be using the AP heavily for future use and u just want to clear the CEL light. go to a decent auto shop, pay the $20, goodbye CEL light!
