Does anyone have the procedure for the post CAT removal sensor "fooler"?

Is this for a NA or turbo?

For the NA the second (rear) sensor needs to be spaced out of the flow by about 40-80 mm. You get pipes off the shelf for that, or can have it made up. Its basically just a section of 25 mm pipe with male thread that screws into the original bung, and then the sensor screws into female thread on the spacer.

For a XT it's easiest to have the code suppressed on the ECU, as they are "editable". I don't know if the mechanical fix works on XT's as well.

Thanks, LSS. It's an SH XT.

Yes, I believe it's easy to "delete" the code. BUT the car is in Kimberley and trust me, there's NO ONE able to do it! I'm at my wit's end with this &*%$#@ check-engine light! I've bought a OBDII tool to delete the code, yet it still returns, after about 150km driven, so perhaps you need a Tactrix cable or one of those seriously complicated machines... There's no agent in Kimberley and just a service agent in Bloem...
