well it should be stored in the ecus memory....just b/c the CEL isn't on, you should still be able to check the code by jumping the service connector.

I was totally messing with ya...

But to answer your questions a hollowed cat MAY cause a secondary o2 code, it will definately cause problems..

either way thats not your problem. Check your code by jumping the connector then get back to us.
