I just purchased my first car! It's a 2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T. It has bunches of upgrades in it so I won't have to ever put anything in it.... But it doesn't have a catalytic converter which causes the engine light to come on. I had my mechanic check it out and he said everything was in perfect working order but he recommended purchasing a catalytic converter. I don't make much money and I'm only going to purchase it if I NEED it, any help would be epic. Thanks! :D

First off, Welcome of MFG and congrats on the 1.8t...Pics or it didnt happen...lol. The cell can be turned off using and o2 spacer like one of these.... http://store.42draftdesigns.com/O2-Sensor-Spacer_p_306.html
It will back the o2 sensor out of the stream and turn off the CEL. Or you can check and see what kind of tune you have. Some companies can turn off the CEL,this as a feature on the ECU programming.
