Tdi delete

Hi everyone.
Got a 2014 3.0 tdi. So i currently got the buzzken mid mipe delete so no more dpf. Got it tuned aswell.
Moving forward, i want to get a downpipe from the turbo down which is where that first cat is. My only question is that when i disconnect the sensors on it, my check engine light comes on but i thought the tune would eliminate thAt.
And the buzzken downpipe does not have slots for all the sensors. I want that thing out. What do i do?
Thank you

Not really sure, left it to my local performance shop to get it done. I was thinking to take the down pipe out and gut out the inside of the cat? But then i feel the CEL Would still come on. Im stuck here.

I definitely wouldn't eliminate those sensors; there should at least be a lambda sender and EGT probe that the ECU uses to fine tune engine management. You could probably have your shop weld in the appropriate bungs to the Buzzken DP. Have you messaged Ken about installing it? I'm surprised he wouldn't include ports for those probes...

Some of the tunes eliminate as many sensors as possible.
Two reasons I can think of for doing this:
1) Eliminates possible sensor failure and problems down the road for the owner
2) Less cost for the manufacturer of the products to add in sensor bungs
