Oxygen Sensor Bypass/ Simulator

So recently went back to catless after passing emissions and didn't want that little engine symbol popping up again with the typical P0036 and P0139 codes. After scouring the interwebs I located a hack where you place a resistor and a capacitor in the O2 sensor wires. This got rid of the P0036 and P0139 codes even without a O2 extension but now I have a P2270 code (O2 sensor stuck lean), so FML. I'm wondering if a lower ohm resistor would get rid of the code. Just thought I'd share and maybe see if someone else has done this.

One 1 MEG ohm 1/2 watt 1% metal film resistor
One Capacitor 1 uf/microfarad 50 v/volt 85C Kemet Radial

... and here's my hack job. Everything was shrink wrapped afterwards and heat shielded.

this worked great for my 2000 mitsubishi mirage going catless... not so sure about todays modern veloster turbo.

why wouldnt you use the tried and true o2 spacer?
