What do you mean, no O2 sensor? The cat has nothing to do with a primary O2 sensor. The fuel injection is a feedback system. The O2 sensor is required to properly meter the fuel. Without it you basically go to 80%+ of full rich constantly. That's akin to just pouring gas into the throttle body at a constant rate regardless of engine speed. You run way rich at low speeds, the the higher you go, the leaner you run. Even a factory smogger carburetor would do better than that.
