Hi all- right need to know whether the heat censor on e1-3 is linked to the ecu, usually there just a tell tale that somethings wrong with the cat and dont have anything to do with ecu!
anybody know different on these?
or anyone fitted a decat to e1-3 without the heat censor plug?

cat overheat sensor is not linked to the ecu our local dealers contacted japan for us and they said just link the sensor out it will be fine,ours has been running like this for about 15 months no probs it is located just behind the cat.apparently you dont need it in this country. :)

I just have the sensor tied up under the heatshield where the cat should be...i think if you remove it it will cause the engine check light to come on, and likewise if you crimp the wires together it may cause a fault code
