A catalytic converter is a device that has been mandatory to put on vehicles since 1975. The threat of air pollution is staggering and with it there is not as much of a threat as there used to be. This device is made to help reduce the harmful emissions that come out of the exhaust of your vehicle.
I recommend starting with raising the boost of the stock turbos to roughly 18psi. This will require a quality boost gauge and a boost cut eliminator (GReddy BCC). You will achieve 15 or so PSI with the stock Down Pipe in place. This will provide an addition of approximately 30rwhp. After those modifications are completed, it would be a logical next step to install the Down Pipe and Cat-Back Exhaust at the same time. You will now be at full BPU(TM).
When away from your home try and park in well-lit busy areas. This may make your vehicle a less attractive target for a fuel thief as there is more chance of them being disturbed.
Another important task of the exhaust is to clean up all the emissions that may prove harmful to the environment. When the engine burns the fuel, it emits harmful gases like hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide. The exhaust system, with the help of the catalytic converter recycling, cleanses these gases by breaking down the damaging gas compounds. The chemicals present in the catalytic converter act as catalyst. They change the extremely dangerous gas compounds into less destructive ones. In this era of environment conservation, it is almost a criminal offence in some countries not to have a catalytic converter. The converter is very important for the better performance of any exhaust system. Thus if your catalytic converter is not up to the mark, then you need to replace it immediately.
HAVE you heard of the gentleman who Invented the 200 MPG Carburetor and the Oil Companies Started responsibility this ONE THING to render it useless…?
Yes, they have been shown to provide a 5-15rwhp gain on a BPU(TM)’d car. But to extract their potential, you must have them tuned, by a knowledgeable tuner, on a dyno. And most of the power gains will be seen on the exhaust side. I also recommend buying cam gears which feature 5-bolts.
We have already bought a number of such kits and fixed them. I have also done quite a good amount of research and read their reviews on Net and also looking for the people who have already got them installed and seeking their opinion which is good and which is not.
