    Yes, it should turn that code off but you won't need an aftermarket CAT. Several members here have gone this route with success.

    I have seen a few members here purchase a Walker aftermarket CAT from them and actually have the code go away.

    I would suggest one of the following options:

    A) purchase just the O2 sim. It will resolve your code issue

    B) purchase just the CAT and see if it resolves the code issue. If it doesn't, then purchase to O2 sim.

    agreed, I have the sim and works great. I had to get the sim because I bought a magnaflow high flow cat that was guranteed to be legal. It tripped a code in 2 weeks. DO NOT BUY A MAGNAFLOW CAT. My exhaust guy said all the ones he ever sold were brought back. If your alright not running one just get the sim. Just gut your current one.
