    P0420 is a cat inefficiency code for the drivers side, I'd delete it and see if it keeps coming back. Top off the power steering fluid if low. Don't know if excessive burnouts are related to either problem.

    After a good workout around turns or several donuts in a row, I've had power steering issues like that. Check the fluid with a light shined down but there is just a lot of air mixed up in the fluid.

    I'd just delete the code like they said above it might just be a fluke.

    yeah is seems the more and more i drive it the better it geting so i think they might just be air mixed in so i hope its all good but as far as the code i dynoed sat and in runing 14.7 a/f so the car is not runing lean like the code was saying, im thinking the o2 might be going out if so time to get ride of em
