Here's your answer:im in pasqoutank county, near the obx.
Or you could do it the correct way and replace the cat............ :zdunno:All emissions rules and possible MIL codes aside, it's better to simply remove the cat and replace it with a straight pipe than it is to hollow one out. The hollow chamber you'd create by knocking out the money parts would kill the exhaust velocity.
Did your rear O2 MIL eliminators look like this, Rob?The P0420 code means your o2 sensor data for bank one is showing the converter isnt doing its job as well as it should be. This could be from bad o2s on that bank, an exhaust leak before the converter, or a bad converter. If you gut that converter, that same code will still be around. You can try to diagnose it or just put on some MIL eliminators.
I built some mil eliminators with instructions found online years ago using stuff from radio shack. We put them on my wifes 97 GT and about once every 6 months I would have to clear out the catalyst efficiency code, so thats not too bad.
okay,one quick question, does the converters in our cars have platinum in them? if im going to replace them with a "test pipe" then i might as well get some cash, someone told me that fords eliminated the use of platinum in the converters and use something else.
If you guys are interested see this thread for more info on stolen cats. Thre are more precious metals in cats than just platinum.Converters still have platinum in them AFAIK, thats why people were stealing them a couple of years ago.
