Re: I took off the cat,put a straight pipe and connected to BSR,result:LIKED IT! (xenophobic)

how did you get the cat out...it's part of the downpipe...did you cut it out and weld a straight pipe in?

I think he means the center resignator was removed (JRL PATENT) not the cat.And straight pipe in its place. The burning smell is the new metal curing itself. Should go away in a few days.

I think you mean the center resonator (my patent <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> ) underneath the center of the car, It's almost impossible to "just remove " the cat without destroying the downpipe and the 02 sensors

Heh, I can definitely agree that removing the cat increasest exhaust smell. But you get used to it after a while....lol.<br>Smells kinda nice after you've been on the throttle (slightly rich)

So, if I am correct, to be causing additional damage to the planet's ozone layer...you now have a better sounding 5 cylinder Volvo. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

"...ozone layer..."<p>That's funny from someone who drives a 2004 Tahoe and a 1989 F-150. <p>According to google, Istanbul had some of the highest pollution rates in Europe.

Take your rear O2 sensor out of it's bung and zip-tie it onto the frame in a safe place. The front O2 sensor will continue doing it's job normally, and when the ECU queries the rear O2 sensor to see how clean the after-cat exhaust is, it will appear that the cat is doing a stellar job since the rear O2 is sitting in open air. No codes, no cat, just boost, noise and pollution.<p>Works like a charm.
