    2020 Darkhorse Challenger 11300miles - Back in summer I had LLoyds tune done with Tab Cat delete and stock pipes, things were fine. I decided I liked the stage 1 oval Indian Pipes so I purchased those and Installed , afterwards had some fishy engine lights coming on but no performance issues so I rode on....Problem was the noise I know loud is good but it wasn't a good loud so I removed the Cat Delete and installed the Cat back. My question is since I had the LLoyds tune is there anything I need to do or will the computer adjust? Before bike was initially Tuned with stock pipes and cat delete , now I have a cat and stage 1 pipes? I may be overthinking it.....
    Also my engine light came on yesterday, pre putting cat back in , but with no performance issues. Gonna take bike to Indian tomorrow and hook to a computer to clear. Is this the issue LLoyds and Indian are working on or is it ghost in the machine.
    thanks for any info

    The CAT is where your backpressure came from. It matters. I don't have a Challenger so my experience is all from V-Twins [air-cooled]. I'd call Joey (Master Tech at Music City Indian) and get the straight dope.

    I just deleted my Cat with the TAB performance pipe. I have Lloyds tune, stage one air cleaner and Indian stage one slip-ons. No codes (so far). It is much louder, but I like it. The bike feels cooler, and I know it is only 10 lbs (and it could just be placebo effect) but I swear it feels lighter on the turn-in. More clearance too.
