Default What tuning program for a 1996 454 vortec?

Just bought a 96 Dually with a 454 vortec. Im looking to cut the cat(or cats) and run a true dual setup. What is needed to do this to get rid of the rear o2 sensor? Would be willing to go with a tuning soft ware id so. We have HP tuners for f bodies and tuner cats for OBD1 fbodies, Im sure one of these wont do it.
Thanks

Used to be tuner cats did it, but then they sold out that part of there software to Jet. There the only ones who do the older Vortec stuff.

I think that there are still people selling some ever on tunercats site but it may be hit or miss.

I have a Tunercat OBD2 with MXScan that I will sell to you. The definition file I have is for 2003 - 05 LS1 Trucks (4.3L, 4.8L, 5.3L, 6.0L, 8.1L) and is OBD2_04.

You will need to buy a definition file from Tunercat for 79.95.
OBD2_07 for 1996 - 97 Vortec Trucks (4.3L, 5.0L, 5.7L, 7.4L).

PM me if interested. $480 plus shipping from Canada.
