Finally got rid of my little yellow friend
About a year ago, I got my exhaust (Brullen headers, custom cat back), and promptly got the 0420 code (No surprise there).
Brullen did a few things, and eventually sent me out their "fix" which consisted of a new cat with a bung welded both before and after, rear O2 wiring to be spliced in (Has a small mylar cap in it), and wiring to extend the front O2 sensor to the new place.
After finally getting off my butt and moving the front O2 sensor to in front of the cat, and replacing replacing both O2 sensors, I no longer have my CE light (I DID NOT replace the rear cap, just to see if it would work).
It's been 12 days, and so far, so good. And now, midrange power is up, bottom torque is good, and my gas mileage has increased dramatically (50 more miles out of the last tankful).
And for those of you who ask "why did you wait so long?"
