I have a White, 2000 GS Fed Spec.
I installed my headers and had to make a custom pipe to go from the OBX Headers to the Flex Hose before the cat. There is a small leak because i havn't put a gasket in between where the headers and custom pipe meet (doing that after school) anyways, i was wondering if that would throw off my o2 sensors and cause my check engine light to come on? or if the check engine is somthing else. I'm also changing the oil after school because i just had my mechanic put in new Pistons and Rods. anyways, if you have some input, lets hear it.

Yes, an exhaust leak can cause a code. You need to pull the code #s in order to get any accurate help. And don't forget to reset the ECU if you haven't done that yet either.

Yep, and even if you're o2's get moved any that can throw a code as well. I'm starting to think I may have an exhaust leak in my megan racing headers somewhere, time to trobleshoot :(

If u have an aftermarket header u have about 99% that ur SES light will come up, cuz of ur o2 sensors. I had the same thing after I installed my Hpr header. Get the code # that is throws, if it's P0421 then here is the link for u. http://www.club3g.com/forum/performance/55284-how-fix-ses-error-code-p0421-about-5-bucks.html . I used that method, works perfect.
I didn't think Fed Specs had rear O2s.... or do they have just one? trv has a FedSpec. If the fed-spec does have a rear/secondary O2 then ya he could use the spark plug nonfouler trick. Just make sure they are not used on the front/primary sensor/s or it will never run correctly.

Edit:
BTW, fed specs have two o2 sensors, one right before the cat and one right after the cat, i also fixed the exaust leaks.

All you had to do was google p0170. Change the O2 sensor in Bank 1.
