    PO430 and o2 sensor readings.

    My maxima has been throwing the po430 code now for a few months. I've been clearing the code but it keeps coming back on progressively faster after each code wipe. Decided to get the 02s readings and B1s2 B2s2 read 0.290 volts steady each. Bad front cat? any opinions.
