    S type catalyst problem-3.0 L petrol

    I have recently replaced the catalyst[after market] on my Stype 3.0 l petrol auto[138,000 miles]-error code P 0420[catalyst system efficiency below threshold Bank 1] is shown again.Does anything need reprogramming?Could the back box be contaminated from the failed catalyst?Could the new catalyst be faulty?Any help would be greatly appreciated.The car runs well.

    Have you checked the O2 sensor to confirm that it is the catalytic converter and not an O2 sensor failure?

    Also make sure there is no air leak between the upstream and down stream O2 sensors. This also throws the P0420 error.
