The pre-cat is located on the header and there is another cat on the mid pipe of the car.so im sure this is a dumb question, but where is the cat actually located on the spec v. i read that its on the header but then i was told thats just a precat. i need a new header, have a new exhaust, but dont want to throw those 2 items on and lose the cat in misguided ignorance and then fail an emissions test. help please?
Yea....I was going to do that back when RevAuto was still around and I actually had money, then I thought to myself...no garage to work on...getting married...yea, supercharger was out of the question at that time. I wish I really did though.Try having a supercharger in Cali
I'm glad I bought the car new, had it for 6 1/2 years and my first smog test isn't til October.
so does this mean as long as i have a cat at all im good?How is a Visual Anti-Tampering Check performed?
A certified technician will look for the presence of the following emission control devices:
• Catalytic converter,
• Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve,
• Positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve,
• Fuel inlet restrictor,
• Air pump, and
• Evaporative control system components such as vapor canisters and lines.
The certified technician will also determine if these devices are properly connected and
if they are the correct type for the vehicle being inspected. These components may be
original vehicle equipment or an equivalent aftermarket replacement component
meeting the same standards. Only those components (listed above) that were part of
the original certified vehicle configuration are subject to this portion of the inspection. If
a component was not originally on a vehicle at the time of manufacturer, it will pass
inspection without it.
thank you. finally an answer. well. since im not paying 900 for a nismo with a cat im going with that magna flow.Hmm...only one way to know!
The only thing is that I believe the white sticker under the hood shows 2 TWC (three way cat). If they see only 1, you're going to fail.
how much money they make an hour who cares what they hate..lol.. i used to know some making 30+ hour for test only. good money for almost kicking back.Smog techs hate those things. I've talked to a few of them and they said that if even a small hose or the filter media is changed to a different brand or part number, like the color of the filter, etc..it fails. They hate having to check what is supposed to be in the kit.
Hey now. I almost had my license, but with Dodge closing up on me I decided to move to a better paying job.how much money they make an hour who cares what they hate..lol.. i used to know some making 30+ hour for test only. good money for almost kicking back.
