Euro Header/bung 02 combo choice advice

Im itching to do my header install this spring and have a few choices. just wanting some advice. I currently am i possession of a set of Euro headers now and do not want a CEL. It looks like my choices are below.

1. Euro headers with DKF s-pipe and DKF resonators with o2 bungs(extended 02's). The S-pipe I believe would have to be bought to accommodate the EGT. This assumes that DKF will actually produce an S-pipe and O2 bung resonators. Cost minus headers Approx $1300.

2.Euro headers with DKF s-pipe and leave stock section 2. Evolve tune to turn off CEL and eliminate rear sensors. . I already have a tune and was wondering if I can still do the laptop programming of the Evolve.
Cost minus headers approx $1500.

3.Sell euros and buy some Fabspeed headers,Evolve tune. cost after sale of Euro headers approx $1400.


Ideally, I want to keep the Euros but the EGT issue is throwing me for a loop as a good tune, I feel would be less of a pain then extending my O2 sensors. Anyway, any advice would be appreciated. Just looking for the most solid setup w/o breaking my x-mas bonus bank.

Find myself wondering the same thing about the EGT. I have euros and intend to go catless, tuned, but not sure how this affects the EGT.
