Check Engine light on! PLZ HELP! PLZ HELP!

ok so, i was due for inspection march of 08, i been tryin to take my 97' 2.7 4x4 tacoma, to get inspected and cant pass, because of my check engine light, i found out why my C/E light was on, it was because of my cat. Feburary of this year, i had my stock cat replaced because it was clogged. I replaced it with a HI-Flow cat, because it was cheaper to do. During the rest of the year the C/E light would come on and off every now and then, but now it stays on, and i cant pass inspection. But I love how a hi-flow cat makes my truck sound. So is there a company that makes hi-flow cats for tacomas that will keep the C/E light off, and passes inspection? any suggestions?

but they had the code and went to the dealer and their tec was talking about the hi flow does not burn off the excess exhaust enough for the sensor to say it is ok.
here it is http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...onverters.html

long story short, I suggested going to urdusa and buying one of their O2 simulators. http://www.urdusa.com/product_info.p..._id=1230100014

dam this sux, a stock cat is like $500 and $100 to install, and it doesnt sound nearly as good as the hi flow, see I'm from NC, there are so many restrictions u pretty much have to have a all stock car to pass, if i jus knew a company that makes cats for my specific tacoma (1997 2.7 4x4) i would be soo much better off

i agree with iscoee get an o2 simulator or a mil eliminator same thing it tricks ur computer into thinking that the cat is cleaning everthing up taking away the light and the code my truck doesnt even have cats and i got the mil elimanator and no codes here but i do live in florida no emissions inspections
