It's an almost 2 ft long pipe, it's not all the way back...it's going downward in the same fashion as the exhaust dp and with the outlet aim at the floor. There's a place I can reroute it back to the dp instead of the cat area since I have different flange there for me to swap out straight pipe and cat.quote:
What length pipe U use on the wg?
All the way to the back or short free to air in the engine room?'
Isn't there space to join the exhaust in the cat. area?
RICA checked the MY2003 ECU and it says ME7.0.1 which is the same as the MY2002.
Software is different.
Just for the record.
Probably not, they said it doesn't matter, but they are making the work sounds ridiculously tough...like they will need to take the downpipe off to do the welding...and other tasks involvoed.quote:
I don't know if a partial exhaust flow represents all.
The pipe is not connected, it's dumping air directly to the atmosphere. I was thinking about the same thing. Since now I do have my "test pipe" out, maybe I'll make a very smooth "Y" joint on that pipe for this wastegate pipe on that "test pipe" I have. Then when I do need to use the cat, it will be running with a version that I have now. I know this probably doesn't make any sense for the emission, but this is more or less for my convenience.quote:
The other thing is that if you have to remount the cat for emissions how will the wg pipe be connected.
I think best would be to let is run straight (horizontal) in to the exhaust just before where the cat normally would be to maintain the exhaust flow
Yup, so almost no way to go back to intersect before the first O2 sensor. My 2nd O2 sensor is supposedly disable, but I still get check engine light when that sensor is bad.quote:
Stupid me, the first sensor is just after the turbine where the DP bends down isn't it?
Few weeks? You are a good man, we cannot even stand it for 2 days now. I will definitely reroute it, it's just silly to have loud arse exhaust Volvo. http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif It sounds almost like a v8 w/ open exhaust.quote:
I think when you drive the car for a few weeks like this you might not like it that much anymore.
Afraid? LoL~ Why afraid when I know it's very possible for me to burn the fuel line when I have backfire?quote:
You are not affraid about heating up the fuel line?
