I have a high flow cat. You will loose the cell if you install an 02 cheater. If you still want to try changing the o2 sensor you may have issues with an aftermarket one.

Ford codes the sensors to each car. I tried 2 different brands including Bosh and I still had the cell. Installed back the stock one with the cheater and voila it was gone.

i heard that the cheat is a hit or miss deal.
so even replacing the sensor will not solve the problem.
