Let me first say I am no expert on the subject, but have some knowledge. I do not believe you can eliminate the o2 sensors as they are the primary sensor for adjusting the a/f ratio. If you were to figure out a way to eliminate them and revert to preset fuel maps, this seems like a step backwards as that would be like running a carburetor, always at one setting, and would hurt mpg and performance. It is best to have the sensors working properly to adjust for differences in atmosphere, etc... I'm thinking on your other cars you maybe eliminated the rear o2 sensor that was behind the catalytic converter(only used to indicate if the cat is operating correctly) and didn't eliminate the front o2 sensors that are used for a/f ratio. I did this in my s10, spaced the rear o2 out of the exhaust stream with a spark plug non fouler because my cat was hollowed out and I didn't want the check engine light on....
