I have actually removed the cat(s) top top every dodge truck i have ever owned. Started earlier in 1982. The ECM will not go crazy on you. & the truck will certainly run just fine if not better. Cats space a joke, no matter how great the EPA claims they are & no matter just how much far better the "newer ones" flow. If you want to save from obtaining a CEL light, put the aft sensor top top the appropriate bank, the fore sensor on the left bank. As long as the 2 readings are different, the light will certainly not come on. & since the 2 financial institutions of the motor never ever burn the exact same ammount the fuel the precise same way, the readings will be different. To be doing that on every OBD dodge truck i have ever before owned. Never had a CEL irradiate come on. NEVER.

Your law it come the 01 lamb in her sig. Correct? room the sensors placed 2 in prior of the cat 2 in behind of the cat or room they different? space you planning on running true duals or a single? your truck must be Cali. Emissions equipped. All of my OBD rams have actually only had 2 sensors....fore & aft. Or pre-cat & post-cat, yet you desire to look at it.

Yes, that is the 2001 in mine signature and also it is a California emissions truck.It has actually one O2 sensor before and also one O2 sensor after every catalytic converter.I know the behind sensors are just checking "catalytic converter efficiency" I just DO NOT desire a examine engine light favor I had on mine last vehicle after removing the catalytic converters (even after I mounted a high flow catalytic converter).I currently have the exhaust on my truck (it is a 3" mandrel bent single from the Y-pipe rearward the splits in ~ the double 3" outlet muffler v cheater duals out the rear of the truck).

You have the right to install spacers to pull the O2 sensor the end of the exhaust stream and also that will resolve the problem.The spacers space spark plug spacers and also you drill the end the center to make sufficient room for the O2 sensor, leave the threads in place.

Those spacers are just spark plug non-foulers.I tried those on my last vehicle and they didn"t work-related either.I simply don"t want to rigid at one more C.E.L. For an additional 6 years simply due to the fact that I want to acquire ~5 horsepower.

If your the worried around a CEL light, i wouldnt mess through it. I have never excellent a cali. Emissions truck so i cant say if it will work-related without throw a code. Never the less, because your running a separation single, girlfriend will need to move the aft sensors to the rear as lot a poss. Expand the wires out & operation them (sensors) in the area the the muffler if girlfriend can. Or you have the right to drill a brand-new spots top top the right bank (drivers next pipe if your looking from under the truck) of her Y & put them in it. I dont think girlfriend would want to perform it that method since you have actually a quite Y pipe. I have constantly run true duals on my trucks, ns can post a pic of how I walk the sensors if you like.
Do you use a H
or X pipe in her true dual set-ups?Why would certainly I need to move mine O2 sensors come the behind as much as possible?I would just gut my manufacturing facility catalytic converters, no actaually remove (or replace) them.They are right off the exhaust manifolds through an O2 sensor just before it and also an O2 sensor simply after it (before lock "come" right into the Y-pipe).

I have a double in dual out muffler,so i really dont require a x or h pipe. Ns just have actually it dumped in front of the rear end. Moving the sensor to the behind of the pipe will make it review different. The ammount of gasses varies the additional it has to travel. Every you need is a reading different from the pre cat sensors. Have you make the efforts to find a center box to eliminate the CEL? ns dont recognize if you deserve to still gain them, however I gambling you can. That would be your ideal bet.
in cali you can not take it a 1500 v the y pipe and do true duals... It will not happen smog... At the very least when my mother took her (97 1500 5.2 4x4) in for exhaust she want duals prefer mine (96 2500 5.9 4x4) yet the shop stated they deserve to not execute that perform to california emmision laws. Therefore she went through a high circulation cat and a spintech muffler with twin tips sounds really great i can add:secret2:
H = TQX = HPi have 2 H ... And that is where my o2 sensors are 96 obd one h prior to cats and also one h after, no inspect engine light
Don"t gut the cats. I just did mine and also lost few of my lower end torque. I know this for sure as result of pulling a camper before and directly after. Don"t ask me why but it happened. I have a 98 set up through the 2 right into 1 design at the cat and will be installation a brand-new y pipe with a far better flowing cat come hopefully regain what ns lost. Not just that when I gutted my cat, i was an extremely concerned around the really fine dust particles i was clouding the air v then breath them. I did stay a dust mask but in the end it was no worth the aggravation. Unless you recognize it"s plugged and you need an cheap fix...
Just leave the cat alone. Obtaining rid the them will drop her low end torque. Exactly what a van is designed come have.

Don"t gut the cats. I just did mine and also lost several of my lower end torque. I recognize this because that sure because of pulling a camper before and directly after. Don"t ask me why yet it happened. I have actually a 98 collection up with the 2 into 1 architecture at the cat and will be installing a new y pipe through a better flowing cat come hopefully reclaim what i lost. Not just that once I gutted my cat, ns was very concerned around the very fine dust particles i was clouding the air with then breath them. I did stay a dust mask but in the end it was not worth the aggravation. Uneven you know it"s plugged and you need an cheap fix...
x2....gutting the cat will shed low end power....better to change with high circulation or have actually a y-pipe bent up in 2 or 2.5in deleting the cat....JEG"S also makes a y-pipe under there own name with cat delete....both 02 bung"s space welded in as well....i would be running one if the werent for the inspection nazzi
