Golf GTI Mk6 De-Cat advice - APR Stage 1

Hi All,

I have recently had a Stage 1 APR tune and looking to go stage 2 at some point in the future. I already have the de-cat pipe.

Does anyone know if I can install the De-cat pipe with a stage 1 tune, will it throw up any lights, will there be any issues with the tune?

Also if any lights come up is there a way round it without going stage 2?

Thanks for your help

You will get an engine light due to the car detecting bad emissions on the post cat sensor. Stage 2 clears this fault.

Stage 2 usually raises the boost a little bit in the mid due to the better flow after the turbine.
