deleting cats w/o tune.

If my cats are deleted without a tune, I understand that a cel will be triggered. Will that cel give me any performance issues? IE: will my car enter limp home mode? Or will I be ok running like that for a couple months?

thank you, and the rear 02's...can I just tape off the connection, or must they remain connected or grounded?

An xcal is in my cars future, so the mil eliminators would become redundant.

Just tape them off so no water/moisture can get in the connectors.

Performance won't change, and you can build your own MIL eliminators for about $1.50 at Radio Shack. Do a search for the diagram on the web.

The fact that the rear oxygen sensors don't affect how the car runs (i.e. A/F mixture) and that the car won't enter "limp home" or any other performance-reducing mode as a result of anything dealing with the rear oxygen sensors. My answer to the original poster's question was relating to performance of the vehicle as a result of the PCM entering some kind of mode, not performance by freeing up the exhaust.
