I will put everything in my signature once i get the car operational. Its no big secret, im not coming out cammed, intercooled, and NOS'd or anything lol.

One thing that was suggested to me is that the explosions may be from it running too rich because i dont have my downstream o2 sensor hooked up. Does that sound plausible? Other than the intermittent explosions, it seems like it idles fairly smooth.

Rich or lean. Hard to say how much fuel is being commanded. Yes, that could be it. By the "downstream O2", you mean O2#1, before the cat, right? This is technically the upstream O2.

No, i do have that one hooked up. I do not have my downpipe hooked up with the o2 sensor after the cat, though. Im going to try that right now

O2 after cat is downstream - it doesn't do anything, really. Mine's disconnected.

I might go ahead and just return that and get my money back then... haha So i can just plug the hole with a pipe cap or something and have the code tuned out?

BTW, exploding sounds still happen withe the downpipe and downstream o2 hooked up.

Yeah, the only function for the downstream O2 is to report the cat converter is working. It doesn't affect how the engine runs. I doubt they'll take it back now that you've used it.
