^^Agreed. I can't tell the difference between ULSD and LSD.larithmos said:Adonis, I noticed your tint comments in your profile. I just got a ticket for that... in Iowa. Cop went to his car and look up the MI regs and gave me a stinkin ticket.
...on stinky exhaust, the worst exhaust smell is from and oldish gas cars when the car is cold, that stuff is about as acrid as it gets.
Maybe true unless it is plugged, then there is a very noticeable improvement.
Speakin of cats, whats the average life span of one? I've got 71k on my tdi.. getting clogged...? Si or no? And when you says you gained mpg are we talking all hwy or city? If i can gain that, hell yeah i do it..sqhschief said:Just a quick note to update those who were asking.
I did go ahead and cut off my catalytic converter. I noticed it was very clogged. I went ahead and welded a pipe on till my high-flow gets in.
I noticed a fairly generous power response increase. I also could tell my tdi now smells like a semi-tractor with a strong "diesely" smell, and smokes more. Lastly, this coupled with the muffler removal makes for a really loud turbo spooling sound, I love that. I just hope it wont muffle any of that sound with the new high-flow.
Oh one more thing. I noticed I get 4-5 extra mpg. My catylytic converter must have really been clogged...
