I would just get them tuned out with a mail order tune from Steve at tunebyfrost.com. O2 sims at least the electronic kind have a tendency to fail frequently and for $99 each time that gets pricey. Something you could try is making a mechanical O2 sim. It costs like 5 bucks. What you do is buy two sets of spark plug non-foulers and drill out two of them with a 1/2" drill bit. Then screw each of the drilled out non-foulers to one that hasn't been drilled out. Then install your O2s on these. What this does is take the O2s out of the direct stream of exhaust so it doesn't detect anything wrong. That said I would still get it tuned out.
