You can use the post-cat O2 sensors for this. They have heaters in them. You can plug them in just for purposes of having the heaters in the circuit. You can hang them in the drug bin or just screw them into the headers. Doesn't matter where you put them, they just need to be in the circuit.
But thats not going to remove the check engine light. Ur saying to just plug them into the bungs or hang them from the drug bin but that doesnt solve anything. Here in idaho we dont have the sniffer test, all they do is check and make sure you dont have a check engine light via obd port.
