Re: does this look right?

it'll work if you have dx/lx. this will eliminate your cat though, won't be able to pass emissions, and you'll get a CEL

CEL= check engine light. an O2 simulator fools the ecu into thinking that clean air is passing through the now non-existant cat.

Re: does this look right?

or you can just extend the o2 sensor farther out of the exhaust not putting the sensor in direct exhaust flow. that way since the exhaust are not flowing directly into the sensor it thinks the cat is doing the job of cleaning the air because it sees less exhaust gases going through the sensor.
