o2 Simulators on M6 F12 - Anyone Running Them?

I want to install AMS catless downpipes in my M6 F12 but I know the CEL will go on because the o2 sensors after where the cats are supposed to be will throw the code. I am "pretty sure" I can get by with using o2 simulators but it sure would give me a warm and fuzzy feeling if someone on here has done this already.

I am having a hell of a time finding information on modding M6 F12/13s. I know they are newer but some of you gearheads have to be wrenching on these things already. Someone?!

Just my opinion, but I don't see the stock cats being a restriction. About the only gain I see from their removal (besides the headaches with the CEL) is a slightly louder exhaust.

I don't think there is a huge difference (performance-wise) in removing the cats. I am putting on a Burger tune and it might help if the exhaust can breathe a little better.

I am also doing it so the exhaust will sound more throaty. I have an Eisenmann race exhaust on now and it would be nice to let it howl a little more as it's a beautiful sound.

I have been talking with the guy over at o2simulator.com and from what I have researched I think they probably have the best option. It's an electronic type hack that splices in with the o2 sensor wires.
