I agree that having an EFIE for every 02 sensor would make the behavior more "normal". I definitely think the second 02 measures the efficiency of the cat *and* the health of the cat (I think they are the same thing). Because of the cat-health issue, I am leery of installing a second EFIE.

I don't think that a single EFIE configuration should be connected to the second 02 sensor because I can *see* the 14.7 ratio with the digital A/F gauge. The second 02 sensor is operating in a different range because I can compare readings when I datalog :

Also, it goes against the logic of what I have read regarding closed-loop operation. What I have read tells me that the *first* 02 sensor is used to determine fuel injection at the stoichiometric ratio of 14.7 to 1.
