    Sorry for the lack of updating, I haven't noticed any lost power but I pulled the sensor anyway to test, I didn't notice any change. I haven't been able to pull a cat off yet but I will soon. MPGs is sitting at 13 ish now.

    Yeah I Was Under The Impression I Was Getting a Truck That Got Somewhat Decent MPGs, At Least With A V8 I Would Have Some Decent Power.
