just curious if at WOT (and non WOT for that matter) the high flow cats will even affect my LM-1 reading. I was gonna pull one of my post cat o2s and screw his in for the time being.

This is definitely not what you would want to do. You can get a bung welded in for 20.00 at most shops after one of your pre-cat stock O2 sensor holes or before depending on how your headers are setup. You would never know exactly how bad your calibration would be off going through a catalytic converter as it loses efficiency over time as well.

If you had gutted cats though, you could use
the rear bungs with no problem
