Fix the exhaust leak - 02 sensors don't like leaks. What codes are you throwing?

havent checked the codes yet but it feels like not all the regular power is there

Don't get sims. Fix your exhaust leak and get a tune - a tuner can eliminate the rear O2 sensors, but you need to keep the front ones. The tuner will adjust the A/F ratio so your car will run properly - based off the front O2 sensors. O2 sims are nothing but problems.

I agree with Knight. There are members here who have run O2 sims and regret it. Once you get that car tuned, your mileage should increase.
