Default Spark plug non foulers for O2 sensor

As some of you know/remember I have been getting a CEL for my post cat O2. I have recommended trying this to keep the CEL off when gutting cat or using a high flow. I blamed it on the 14x3 at first, because that's when it started happening. But after going back to stock it still did the same. Then figured the use of MMO was the cause.(still using MMO btw)

It's been coming on everyday, and yesterday I got tired of it. I couldn't find a long enough one so I bought 2 short ones, screwed them together and drilled the top one out with a 1/2" bit so the sensor would clear it and screw in all the way. They are 18mm thread btw.

Well, I'm happy to say I think it works, I've been out all morning and no CEL. So I guess we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Well glad to say I don't either now. Did all kinds of driving today. Highway, bumper to bumper traffic, city, and idling while I loaded and unloaded. And no light, so I guess the non fouler deal works.

hello,

I just did this to mine last week, after 3 months of looking at a CEL. I don't have a cat at all, and the light hasn't came on yet. Ive got about 150 miles on it so far.
