What are y'all seeing for Air/fuel range?

I hit a rock while on a road trip. You can check out the details in my Solo Road Trip thread in Roadside Pub. It put a huge dent in my catalytic converter, among other damage.


Anyway, I swear my readings were pretty steady around 14.0 prior to my road trip. Now they range from 13.6 to 14.4, and bounce back and forth. I'm highly suspicious that the cat internals are cracked and the O2 sensor is likely damaged.

No time left at the shop this year before snow, so I'm scheduling my car for mid April repair. What's the risk of running around for another month with an issue with one O2 sensor on the fritz?

From what I know, even if a cat/cats are removed the engine will still run fine, just have a code.
The concern would be if the converter is blocked internally.
Sorry to hear this on such a new car during a cool trip
