No such code. Find out what it really is and maybe someone can help.
Some aftermarket exhausts even if they do have a cat will cause changes in exhaust flow/temp/mixture that will trigger codes.

No cats = no voltage drop from the front O2 sensor to the rear O2 sensor = CEL. Put a resistor inline to the "signal" wire of the rear O2 sensor and your CEL will magically disappear .
