I have a "high flow" cat so I'm not sure on that one. I did not get one. Not sure if having no cats at all will throw one.

Suspension on mine is stock for the moment... I think you'll have to go coilovers if you want "slammed;" not sure though lol.

If you don't get a reflash, it will throw a code.
if you run a Cobb map or similar, the code is disabled in the map.

I wouldn't recommend more than a 1" drop on stock struts for both performance and not killing the struts in 10k miles.

If there is an o2 sensor AFTER the converter, then yes, it will throw a code. The computer would see "dirtier air" from the 2nd o2 and think something is wrong.

This goes for all vehicles, not just a Subaru.

You might want see if there is a way to simulate that the cat is working properly even though it isn't on the car. Maybe a 02 simulator or a way to just trick the 02 sensor.

im pretty sure there was one narrow band sensor on my 95. Either way if there was 2 it would be a second narrow band so even if it wasnt there i dont think it would do anything. Subaru went with a narrow band front and wideband rear after 98

If you have a down-stream O2 then yes it will throw a code. A few options would be to install one or a few spark plug anti-foulers between the sensor and the exhaust pipe, two would be to install a resistor on the signal wire to simulate proper voltage (this is what I did), or three if you have the option, disable it with cobb or some other type of tuning software.

still could have a down stream O2 sensor. all depends on when subaru started phasing in obd2 stuff to their cars.

If it's a bolt on O2 sensor just get some longer bolts and pile up some washers to move the sensor out of the exhaust stream. Jew craft level 2 but it generally works.
