H-pipe w/o cats and Check Engine !

Hey fellows, I was trying to save some $ of buyin aftermarket H-pipe and
installin it. So I just went to a mechanic and ask him to take off the 2
back cats and empty the first ones, but later Check Engine light came on.
I think it's the O2 sensors! i got the flowmaster mufflers too. Is there
any way to fix this? any help would be appreciated.

I'd imagine all you need to do is find the resistance the rear O2 sensors
have when 'in range' of what is acceptable to the computer and add an
appropriate resistor in line. Just a thought...

I haven't done it myself, but from what I've read here and elsewhere,
it's just a snip-n-crimp job (or solder-n-heat shrink job, for those
anal-retentive "reliability" types ;) ).

You shouldn't have any trouble doing it yourself.

This search has just about everything you need to know, and a wide
variety of places to buy from:

I agree w/ Garth. You can do it on your own in a snap.

Save the environment and get a high flow cat h-pipe.

There is a good chance you'll still need MIL eliminators, even with
high flow cats.

Re: H-pipe w/o cats and Check Engine !

My "friend' (used to be, can't stand the clown now) has an H-pipe w/ 2
high-flow cats (97 GT) & his still gives a check engine light. BUT... my
other friend w/ the SAME H-pipe doesn't get one (97 GT). It's weird!
