How To Take The Catalytic Converter Off

Your exhaust system may consist of a manifold, and a series of pipes, muffler(s), catalytic converter and exhaust tip, all designed to scavenge the hot exhaust gases from your engine out to the open air.

Watch out for scams and tricks that low-end tow guys will try to pull on you. One of the tricks is that they will agree on a price with you on the phone, and then the story will change once they show up to get it. Before they rig it up, they will come and tell you that it the car is missing its catalytic converter. Then they will proceed to offer you $100 dollars less than what you agreed on. The scrap catalytic converter price guide is located underneath the car, and the tow guy knows that most people don’t even know what that is. Even if you did know what it is, chances are that you wont get underneath the nasty car to look for yourself. Most people just would rather save the hassle, so they just agree to take the lower price. Watch out for this trick because it works!

There is some debate on this subject. There are rumors that 180 can be achieved. But by going with the numbers, 168-172mph in stock form seems possible.

The use of hydrogen as fuel can be considered a good option as it cost effective as well as environment friendly. With hydrogen, the main problem is safety. The problem of safety can be solved with the help special storage methods. The hydrogen gas can be stored as hydrides. These are materials, which can soak up hydrogen like a mop soaks up water. A tank is first filled with hydride granules and then hydrogen gas is compressed into the tank. This has numerous advantages as the density of the hydrogen is much more and the hydrogen gets chemically bonded with the hydrides, which is very stable. Hydrogen in this form is so stable that it does not get released even if the tank is open and does not catch fire even if a bullet is fired at the tank. Carrying it is also easy and simple.

Yes, the stock fuel system is very safe and reliable to 450RWHP, although I would recommend a fuel pulsation damper bypass. Anything over that, and I would highly recommend having the car dyno’d, and using a wide-band O2 sensor (not a cheap A/F gauge connected to the stock O2) to check the fuel ratio at your high boost setting. 11.5:1 would be a safe fuel ratio.

Yes. But unless the DP has a Catalyst and a second location for an O2 sensor, you will trip your check engine light, unless you get one of those O2 “black boxes”.

Start the vehicle. Look for any leaks and listen to be sure the car sounds quiet and well tuned. Lower the car from the blocks and give it a test drive before you conclude your repairs. With these simple steps, you can change rusty exhaust equipment on your own, and save hundreds in repair costs.
