its not the sensor, its because the new cat isnt as efficient as the old cat, and BF's (as with any car built after 1/2006) use the 2 oxy sensors to ensure the cat is doing its job properly so as the car complies to emission laws. Put simply, the car needs better cats to be legal.

^ Bingo.

That's why exhausts for BF's are usualy $500-800 more than the same thing for a BA. Better cats are required.

and when u fit a cheap version that interferes with the car, dont expect ford to fix it under warranty either. I wish i had a dollar for every person i've had that arguement with over the years

None of them will be ok with warranty. Ford are cracking down heavily on any mods.

But you should ask, and make sure the cats are Euro3 / BF compatible.
