What you might have seen is an adapter for LS1s that allows you to bypass 2 of the 4 oxygen sensors so you won't set an error code when running this engine in a non-emission application.

Why would you want to bypass that anyway?

As Toneking said there are "simulators" to replace the rear pair of O2 sensors for cars that have them. All cars that have OBD2 engine controls (96 up) have them. So that would include 96-97 LT1's as well as all LS1's. This would possibly be useful in an engine swap or with a custom exhaust, as you wouldn't have to weld in the extra bungs, and you'd slightly clean up the wiring. The second pair of sensors is not used to control the engine, but only to monitor to see if the engine controls are working properly, especially the "working" pair of O2 sensors. If you simply unplug the rear pair of sensors, you'll get an SES light and a code but the engine will function normally. So the only benefit of deleting them is to reduce the $ and trouble to install them.

On the other hand, if you wanted to get rid of the O2 sensors entirely, this scheme won't work - you'll never go into closed loop operation and you'll get codes. Another way around the use of the second set of sensors on an LT1 is to convert the 96-97 model to run on a 94-95 computer/wire harness so that it doesn't even use the second set of O2's. There may be other benefits to converting to OBD1 if you have modified the engine.

I think the simulators are in the Summit catalog. For other sources go to the forums at http://www.camaroz28.com and do a search.
