half the price of getting a tune which increases performance and blocks the code

that's the post cat sensor, you can basically ignore it if you dont mind the CEL staying on
there is no impact to the engine, you could otherwise look for the cheapest method of getting a new sensor that works or otherwise modifying the ecu to block the code

I do like reading your posts Anton. Your current avatar is quite apt if you compare it to his character from Just Shoot Me.
