Exhaust and 02 sensors
I have canary yellow 94 3.8 Mustang that im trying to put new exhaust on. It currently has headers going throught 4 catalytic converters ( 2 on each side) going into an X pipe then into the Mac mufflers and out the back like a GT.
My problem is i want to get rid of my catalytic converters (or at least 2) and get rid of the X pipe by running two seperate pipes to the mufflers. But im having problems doing this because there are 4 oxygen sensors, one in front of the catalytic converters, and one behind them.
What worries me is that if i do this to the exhausts is that the second oxygen sensor will read wrong and throw off the Air/Fuel mixture. I dont know how to fix this issue. I called Summit and they said get a free flowing cat, but they are way to exspensive for my taste. I could buy the dummy O2 sensor which is 88 dollars apiece, but the summit guys says it will turn off the CE light, but may not exactly work. so why spend 176 dollars on something that may not work right.
Im basically looking to just cut off the catalytic converters, weld some piping in, and figure out what to do about the oxygen sensors that wont cost me alot of money.
i have a superchip (along with cold air intake and a 8.8" rear end with the 3.73 trac loc) and was wondering if the superchip can somehow help me fix the air to fuel ratio.
Any help would me much appriciate, after all this is my first post on the mustang forums.
