Can you remove the catalytic converter on your 2001 F-150 and install performance exhaust without messing up the computer or sensors?

No, because most computer run vehicles require the commpression of the catalytic converter so that specific gravity is constant for the fuel monitoring aides. However when installing a performance exshaust a computer chip assembly can be purcahsed that will include the exsaust package. JAR Check with exhaust company. Generally you can relocate your 02 sensors. Has nothing to do with compression. The sensors are heat related.
