Or spend $100 on a universal converter and weld it in.

You need a converter or you'll have an SES light due to the downstream O2 sensor.

Well I only use it off road. That's why I would by pass it. And I know they make o2 by pass harnesses for mustangs and others with off road pipes..

Well, you said its offroad only so, "offroad use only" should be ok to talk about and modify. test pipes (delete pipe) and simulators are probably what you are talking about. Catalytic convertors really are not a great idea for offroad use as they can run really hot and potentially start grass fires and such. So to decide if you want cleaner air or less of a fire hazard might be the decision.

I've looked them up before, so try google. You might include the word "simulator" in your search. Some people have had success using the spark plug anti-foulers in between the sensor and pipe. The anti-foulers are for spark plugs and the spacers you you would want would be for the bigger spark plug thread. These spacers place the sensor out and away from the exhaust stream so they might work maybe? Those spacers should be something a auto parts will have in stock.
