Well all kinds of things happen if the cat is clogged. But that has nothing to do with your question about the post cat o2 sensors. Which has already been answered. And from what I've read here, you have no cat(s) anyway. And since gutting the cat will usually result in a loss of low end, you may be on the gas harder to get the truck rolling. Which in turn, will result in worse mpg.
