Does any one no about down pipes with out converters, and if its legal, especially in Florida. If i get on with out and I am driving down the street is the cop going to notice that I do not have one or not???
i actually did get it working....WHat i did was bascially extend the o2 sensor farther out of the pipe, and it worked, but I have MP prototype DP and the o2 sensor bung is off to the side, and it scraped the ground and killed my o2
Jules 9-3 did the same thing in his 9-3 and he has T7 and I believe its working for him
I'm wondering if this would help my with the problem of my constant CEL on my MP dp. Keep in mind that mine actually has a cat. Its just an MP thing. I'll look into this if Frank doesn't reprogram it into the new ecu at SOC.
I have the MP downpipe WITH cat, and it made the CEL come on. I asked my mechanic about this and he told me to disconnect the battery overnight (to reset the ecu and other electronics) and the ECU should reprogram itself when you reconnect it. This got rid of my CEL with the MP downpipe.
Perhaps some of you just need new o2 sensors? :cheesy: As for the law, no one would know unless you have to take an emissions test. Police would be clueless on a car like a saab if there was a sound difference. The only thing you'd notice would be the fumes that normally are converted w/ the noxious stuff into something else. BTW, the mp w/ cat still has the potential to be VERY LOUD depending on what type of exhaust setup you have. I put mine on tonight and it's a tad lower than my stock piece. I scraped the pavement and knocked loose my poorly secured clamp, seperating the dp from the rest of the exhaust. It was REALLLLLLY LOUD.
My 3" downpipe without a cat from MP Performance was just shipped today. I went down to Schuck's auto parts and found the Motormite Help! 42002 spark plug non-foulers that everyone says will eliminate the check engine light from the rear O2 sensor. Next weekend I hope to bolt it on, and I'll let you guys know if I ever see a check engine light!
