    Jeg's sells a O2 sensor bypass that simply plugs into the harness replacing the sensor...........now that you've fooled the computer into thinking the O2 sensor is functioning correctly how do you adjust the fuel mixture? :doah:

    An O2 sim on the sensors BEHIND the cat is perfectly fine in my eyes. I wouldn't run one before the cat...the sensors after the cats have nothing to do with how the motor runs, but just shows if the cats working right or not, and sets off the check engine light...the sim should fix the SES light prob and not make the motor run any way it shouldn't.
