I know you don't have codes for it, but test the downstream (rear) o2 sensor and all the wiring associated with it. you could also have a damaged exhaust somewhere. cracks in the exhaust can do weird things.

just repalce the o2 sensor thats why its getting the code 90 percent of the time its the sensor

I have an '08' Lancer (ES) 2.0 MIVEC. There is a TSB about re- flashing the ECM for this P0420 BS. Dealer said my car was not eligible for the recall; paid the weenies $ 130 to re-flash it. have not seen the CEL since.
