X-pipe issues

Ok new problem

I got a X-pipe (catted) I gonna install and it only got holes for the front O2s and non for the rear once. Can I just hook up MILs to the O2s and strap them up under there somewhere or do I still got to make sure they still "read" the exhaust?
Guess I just wonder if I can use MILs or got to get a chip or a flasher/programmer to turn of the rear O2s.

i assume the MILs would work. cuz if you look at it from an O/R x pipe stands. Mils are going to tell the computer that the cats are working ok, when actually theres not cats.

Re: X-pipe issues

With the MILs, do I still hook them up the the exhaust pipe or do I just tape it up out of the way?

I don't think it would hurt to just strap them up out of the way since they send a "bogus" signal to the computer.

Re: X-pipe issues

I think it would be cheaper to just have bungs welded in after the cats and run the second set of O2 sensors than it would be to run MILs.

The second o2s should go in after the cats, but it sounds like he already has the mils, if so it might work fine like he said to just strap them in place somehow and hook the wire to them. I had to install mils with my high flow cats, on occasion, not all the time, I would get CEL with them, so I got the mils and no more check engine lights.
