Long tube install question

I got a question, installed long tubes and off road pipe, it has no bungs for the off road pipe. Do I just tape up the rear o2 connector and move it out of the way? Thanks for the help.

I've seen alot of people on here say they tuned them out. I'm not saying it's right or wrong but doesn't the computer use the rear o2's to adjust the air fuel mixture?

the rears only tell the car if the cats are working correctly. they are not needed. Does not affect anything.
