Got this info from the vortex-

In order for the CEL to not illuminate the ECU needs to see altered readings from the second oxygen sensor. The readings needs to be slower in frequency and overall less than the first oxygen sensor. This can be achieved by pulling the nose of the sensor out of the stream of gases. It is important to get this just right. If the sensor doesn't see enough gases a new code will be thrown. If the nose is not pulled far enough out the readings are barely affected. Wayne Schmidt has developed a fitting to solve the CEL problem. His fitting has been thoroughly tested and is running on hundreds of VWs with a stellar success rate. Pictured below, this fitting installs in place of the second oxygen sensor and relocates the sensor outside the flow of gasses. The sensor is installed at a 90° angle to clear the heatshield and ground. The fitting is CNC machined from 303 and 316 stainless steel, guaranteed to last forever and is a completely reversible modification.

i have had this very piece for almost a year now and no CEL with my test pipe. i actually plugged it up today to a scanner to see if it will pass emissions test (tomorrow) and it told me i will pass.

Thanks for the heads up guys, broke my cat 2 days ago. So I ordered a testpipe and just emailed the guy for one of these.
