Removing converters, MIL eliminators

I have a 2001 mustang and dual exhaust, I have decided to cut off the converters and replace them with pipe. When I do that should I replace all 02 sensors? They are original I believe, also does the eliminators go on the 02 behind the converters? Or in front

Thanks! Does the brand of 02 sensors matter?

If your taking off the cats and replacing with regular pipes your going to have to drill holes for the o2's I would just get a O/R pipe just my 2 cents. And yes MIL eliminators will be need for the rear 2 cats

many have issues with MIL's working they seem to be hit and miss~ a tune fixes it 100% though

+100 very good idea to get a tune instead didnt think of it cause you can't just go and buy a tune for my car not only will it fix the codes but ur car will run amazingly

So if I cut them off what do I have to do? Get a tune? Drill holes? I'm now confused and this got a whole lot more difficult
