Exhaust Sensor Spoof

I know I've seen this on here, but I can't find it....my father is trying to cut the cat out his exhaust and run straight pipe. But he doesn't want to get a CEL from that exhaust sensor just after the cat. I know there's an adapter to spoof that sensor but can't find it. Can someone link me to one?

Racing Solutions sells a 90 deg anti fouler. You simplyt thread it into the pipe and then thread the O2 sensor into the anii fouler. It positions the sensor further away from the exhaust gases and therefore does not give a high reading, thus fooling the computer. You should not get a CEL. I have one on my downpipe and it works just fine with no CEL.

If that is the case, then you can do the same thing with parts from the hardware store such as Lowe's or Home depot. Get a 90 degree pipe fitting and do same thing for way less.
