I finally got my cel scanned and its from the o2 housing/sensor.

Now im really confused and a little concerned that Im throwing a cel because I shouldn't have one.

Its really weird that the housings been on there for about a month now and its just now throwing a code? All the sensors seem to be very tight and I can't spot any leaks. I wouldn't think the cat is clogged or anything like that. Which leads me to the actual sensor being bad?

Not sure what I should do about this. Anyone with similar experiences?

double check your o2 sensor plugs,make sure they are plug'd in good,also i got the p2o96 code when i first installed it,but with ceramic cats untill they get up to operating temp a couple times they do not work good for some reason,but after they get hot a few times the codes should go away.wish i would have got thunderbolt cats ,i have had the best luck with them and just welded it in place of thier cat,may do that later on if code ever comes back.also every cat is not made equal and sometimes there is not enough of the metals in the cat or the holes are a little bigger than normal and the ecu just see's no cat at all.
