Service Engine soon

The service engine soon light just came on, on my car . I was just cruising at 40 mph on the highway and this thing came on out of no where. When I got to my destination I reset the oil service meter thinking it was that since the dealer forgot to do it and the light didn't go away. I've never got a check engine light in my car and I can't find the typical check engine light symbol on the odometer. Is this the new check engine light? I recently installed the Specialty X high flow cat pipe and I did use the o2 spacer they provided to avoid CEL's. Any help you guys can provide as always is greatly appreciated.

My highflow cat caused a cel also. Run by an autozone and have them pull the code.
If it is a cat deficiency code that is what caused it

evo's in the US have "service engine soon"; in other countries there's a engine symbol that lights up. im sure its just your 02.

It could really have been anything but the most logical answer without you having the code pulled would be the test pipe

its your o2 i bet, but make sure you pull the code and find out. Even though you have a "cel fix" for it it can still come on. Try unscrewing the o2 sensor out more a bit so it is further away from air flow. If that doesn't fix it you can buy an add on which attaches to your "cel fix" and extends it. I did and it hasn't came on since.

It's the high flow cat or test pipe. You either get a lean code or in your instance with the spacer cause a slow responce code. If you get an AP they can make it so you don't get the lean cell. There is no fix for the second which is like p0139, but it's caused by the spacer.
