    O2 sensor

    I have an 05 wrx with a full turboback exhaust. It has a catless up pipe and a catless down pipe. I have a spacer on my O2 sensor so I don't have any CELS. I mainly did this because of emissions. I was considering removing the spacer when I install my accessport. Just wondering if anyone else has done this and would it hurt to leave the spacer on? Being that The only cat I have is the small one in the aftermarket exhaust behind the O2 sensor I assume it will throw a CEL and when I get it inspected I will need to replace the spacer.

    You can ditch the spacer once you flash the map from the AP.It changes the rear O2 sensor values and takes care of the DTC's associated with causing a CEL.Should be in Cobb's map notes......

    That's kinda what I was thinking, but I wanted to be sure. I didn't want to fail emissions and then have them actually look at my exhaust and realize its missing a cat.
