    The cat on my 1997 Taco 2.7 is rattling pretty bad, exhaust manifold is also cracked. I have the replacement manifold and gaskets and thought of cutting out the cat entirely and replacing with straight pipe but.....I noticed a second o2 sensor past the cat. Will cutting out the cat throw the computer in "limp" mode or will it be fine to do? Are there any other options?

    I see the URD O2 simulator, would that work with a gutted cat or straight pipe correct or would a cheap aftermarket cat be a better route?
