I want to do this mod, but I do not want to fight a check engine light every two days. There has to be a fix for this somewhere.

Best of Luck
The guy did this three years ago...

Aside from that...

The fix is to set the codes to "No Error Reported" or switch the O2s off in the tune. Rear O2s have no effect on driveability. They only measure for converter function. High flow cats will not be as efficient as OEM cats and therefore will set the code. It does not effect the engine or how the car drives.

I agree with the above statements based on my same experiences. I believe my latest tunes have the rear 02 sensors turned off.
