Where are the 02 sensors located on a 1993 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera V6 3300 and if you remove the catalytic converter will it effect them in a bad way?

It is not so much how it affects the sensors themselves, but how much it affects the engine management computer (ECM). The sensors will notice the change in the exhaust gasses and the computer will try to compensate for the change. This often results in poor running, reliability issues, and poor gas mileage. There are however, o2 sensor simulators available aftermarket, though I have no experience with them.
