    No a rear o2 codes will not effect performance.. It's just telling you your catylist is not operating effectively.. Rear 02 can be turned off by a tuner.. Or you can replace the cats and possibly the rear 02 have the code cleared and call it a day.. The code will usually clear itself too after repairs are made and a few startup and shut down cycles are achieved..

    My left bank cat had the same code. Didn't affect performance much just didnt get as good as normal gas mileage. But if the unit becomes completely clogged it will cause problems. Had that happen on my old firebird.

    Eh left side catalytic converter was fucked. Needed replacing. Didn't cause much of a problem. Just gas mileage sucked. Maybe that made more sense. I don't know I'm sitting. In steak and shake pretty much drunk typing on my phone.
