I'm looking to get my 850R back to stock for a number of reasons most of which revolve around being able to get it emission passed in California. It has un upgraded exaust with a CAT that won't pass so I'm replacing the CAT, my issue is that it may still not pass with the uppgraded ECU, if it fails I'm dumping the ECU. The Filter is going to go as well.<p>What I've got.<p>IPD ECU<br>K&N Filter<p>If anyone is interested in the ECU I'd be willing to do a swap of your 1996 850R stock ECU for my upgraded one.<p>As for the K&N, make me an offer.

Re: 850R Going back to Stock (beickman)

I have an original 850 downpipe with cat for sale. I'll take $50.00 plus shipping for it. This way you have the OEM piece and they'll not complain.<p>Also, ECU is only $300 or so from Erie Vovo in PA. Try them for an easy way out.<p>Good luck and cheers,<br>Prospero

Re: 850R Going back to Stock (JRL)

IPD ECU. I don't know about the downpipe. CA SMOG sucks so I'm not surprised there was a problem, my guess is that it's pass once the new Cat is on. Right now I'm just pissed about it all.

<B>The ipd ECU, as far as I know, IS certified for CA.</B><br>You didn't say whose downpipe it is, where did you get it from? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I would buy Prospero's stock downpipe, install it and get a smog cert.<br>There should be NO reason it wouldn't pass <B>unless you have ELSE wrong</B> with your car, did you think about that possibility?

Re: (Boomin850)

Sorry dude, I got it passed with a new catalytic converter so I'm going to keep the ECU on it for now. If you want the K&N Filter unit let me know, I'm going to replace it with a stock one.
