Default 99 5.2 cat delete

If I wanted to get rid of the cat....can I get rid of my o2 sensors and have my truck tuned to run well without the sensors and cat? My county does not do emissions testing, so not exactly breaking a rule.

Any and all help appreciated.

No you need the sensors (the front ones anyway) but the rear one will have to be fooled into thinking there a cat there.

Get a mini cat or tune it to ignore it.

Thanks for the input. Would a regular plug in tuner handle that tuning?

Honestly you would have to check with that particular tuner

They still make pipes that look like Cats and that will have ports for the sensors

Jegs has a catless y pipe. I have it on my 01. What I did the spark plug anti fouler trick. Google it and it will explain the process. No issues with check engine lights.

Depending on tuner options the only available one I could find for my 97 was the hypertech. Did nothing. So waisted 400 bucks there. Just spent another 800 to do it properly. My advice save and get a proper ECM programmer. It will save you in the end. Plus way more options to play with.
