There's a mod involving two spark plug defoulers you can do to trick the ECU into getting an acceptable reading from the secondary sensor. Take first defouler, drill through it. screw the 02 sensor into that, then screw those into the 2nd defouler, and that into the exhaust.

A bad cat will almost always throw code P0420.
