Did you get a high flow cat?

no high flow cat. just a custom cat-back exhaust

Same exact thing happen to me after a several days with the SLP system. The reason why O2 sensor was bad was because when I took the old system off I used a torch to remove the bolts. The heat from the torch probably damaged the wires or the O2 sensor itself causing the SES. After replacing the O2 sensor the SES hasnt come back.

redgt- how much is a new 02 sensor? i finally have time this weekend to work on the car. maybe i can run by the dealership to either buy the part or have them do it. how hard is it to install?

I didnt actually change the O2 myself since I took my car to the dealer for misfire in cylinder 1 and I just told them to replace the O2. The sensor cost 126.59 PN 25312206, but Im sure you could find it for less. Now today when I was passing someone the damn SES light came back on again. Im pretty sure its probably the O2 sensor acting up.
