    What temp tstat are you running? The engine has to get warm enough to have the cat reach operating temp. Codes only give a clue and don't always point you in the right direction. I was just talking this morning about a friends pickup that was throwing cat codes and it turned out the 160 deg stat that works just fine in the summer wasn't getting the job done in the colder winter temps. In extremely cold weather I've even blocked the raditor with a piece of cardboard to bring the temps up.
