What is the purpose of the o2 being located inside the catliytic converter? Can I not just put a fitting behide the convertor an locate my o2 sensor there?

O2 sensors are never inside the catalytic converter. It is either before or after which can be on the catalytic converter housing. There must be a reason why it has to be there and if you shift it somewhere, the readings could be inaccurate.

I wonder why you would want to relocate the O2 sensor?
