Question Lambda sensor, cat removal

Hi all! I wanted to ask if anyone has the experience with removing both catalytic contverters prom exhaust pipe? Also the lambda sensor emulation, would be interesting, because there is no need to make the converter too hot for catalytic reaction... So did anyone tried to make the lambda value from 0.85 to 0.95 (best power results) Thanks for participation!

There are mil eliminators if that's what you are talking about. You sodier it inline with the 02 sensor, and poof your cel is gone.

Thanks for reply!!! So if Im understand it right... I make /or buy/ mil eliminator and solder it with O2 sensor /the one in the first cat/ Remove the 2nd cat and in the first cat i destroy the ceramic s..t inside and throw it away? So te car wont mess with the efficiency oc catalytic reaction and the mil wont ligt. Am i rigt? Please can You be more specific about mil eliminator?

Okay.. You can remove one cat w/o CEL, if yo0u ditch both you need a MIL Eliminator in the rear O2 sensor. Obviously if you remove the compound it messes up the "catalatic" process, you're better off (rather than gutting) making a straight pipe so you can put the cat back on if you need to (lik,e if you sell it).

I have checked few posts and documentations about mil eliminator... It only makes the CEL shut up. But what i want to know... Is there any possibility to make the engine read non stohionomeric mixture as stochionometric??? Because the air/fuel ratio does not to be 14,5:1 (stochionometric, lambda=1, best for catalytic reaction) when i have not catalytic converter, thats i want to do... I want to run the engine about lamda 0,85 for best power output results, or lambda 1.1 for best mileage results.
