Default Anyone run an 02 extender for the p0420?

I saw this one on ebay and i was just wondering if anyone had any experiences or opionions on them.

right now on my 04 wrx i have a stromung catback and 3rd cat delete without a cel on, I have the downpipe at my house i just want to install the downpipe and the fix at the same time to prevent having to drive around with a cel.
I have heard good and bad thing about these, sometimes the work sometimes they dont so please post up anything you know

thanks

go to auto parts store buy motormite 18mm sparkplug non fouler(2) one pack, drill one out with a 1/2" drill bit screw into non modified one. you have your cel fix for about $4

I used one since I have the TXS high flow cat TBE. This fix has never failed under all driving conditions since I put it in. The set up looks completely stock.

Before that I got the p0420 enough times to carry an OBD2 tool in the trunk.

well i put my downpipe on a couple of days ago, with the cel fix in place
(2 non foulers), but i drilled them both out and after about 75 miles it threw the p0420 so i went back and bought another pack, and itstalled one that wasnt drilled out into the bottom, i really hope this works.....although if it doesnt what are my options? solder in resistors?


thanks

See my post in the 2.0l forum "P0420 on stock car" I have two now, and have replaced on down pipe. I am thinking there may be a sensor, or EM issue on these cars. Could also show when the fix works for some and not for others...

....the main reason for failure is drilling both of them........and there are 2 lengths available....the shorter ones are easier to drill.
