97 base lude gutted cat

So I got my hands on a clean 97 base lude 5spd drove it for 3 months and it felt like it was bogging. The car has 215,000 miles on it. So I decided to gut the cat. I drove it after and it felt a lot more peppy but after 3 days of driving back and forth to work the cel came on. P0171 and P0170. Now the car bogs even more at low rpms when cold but gets a lot better at op temp I searched thru a lot of threads and searched in the search box but could not find anything that relates. I know the def of the codes but still have no clue what I'm dealing with.

Re: 97 base lude gutted cat

Since you gutted your cat you have to space out the oxygen sensor. Since there's no honeycomb filtering all the exhaust fumes the oxygen sensor thinks the primary oxygen sensor isn't working and will throw a CEL. Go to a parts store and buy a o2 defouler and the cel will be fixed. Im not sure if that will fix the bogging, replacing your primary o2 sensor may help and clean your EGR valve.

Re: 97 base lude gutted cat

If it's got 215,000 miles on it..
1.) Did you do a tune-up when you bought it?

Plugs, wires, check rotor and Dist. cap, Air filter, Clean EGR valve?
(i'd recommend cleaning the EGR Ports in the intake as well, if you can't spare the time to pull the intake manifold off just look in DIY and consider doing the job...)
Girlfriends Lude ran 100 times better after I took the intake manifold off and removed 175,000 miles of carbon buildup clogging the intake and EGR lines. Cleaned the EGR valve really well, and did a tuneup.

While you are at it check your belts, flush the coolant system, and change your oil.
