The smart car is essentially something to die for. Why you ask? Well, take a look here at what they call their Tridion Safety Cell. While that sounds like a really cool technical name, when I researched how it works if you’re in a crash, you may not survive; hence the to die for revelation.
When it came time to replace the worn out exhaust, including the catalytic converter recycling, Ed Schwerer of Ed’s Auto Works had a solution that would stop the endless replacing of damaged O2 sensors.
Use your tire gauge! Properly inflated tires are a must. Fuel economy decreases by about two percent per every three pounds below the recommended pressure. Check the air pressure regularly; especially before going on a long trip. Your tires will last longer, too.
If there is no recommended repairs for the “trouble code” you are getting check back with the website in a week or two, they have technicians updating CarMD’s database constantly.
As long as a high-flow cat is used, emissions should not be effected, and you should still pass visual inspection. If you run without recycle catalytic converters, you are doing so at your own risk, and you would not pass visual or emissions testing.
A mentioned above a water hybrid car can increase your MPG by 30 miles, well in fact you can DOUBLE your MPG. If you double your MPG it means you can go twice as far as you could with just gasoline. During the current economic climate you cold really do with those few catalytic converter recycler extra bucks from saving fuel.
It varies from car-to-car, and the conditions as well as tuning. Most BPU(TM)-only Supra Twin Turbos, dyno between 370 and 410 horsepower at the rear wheels. This is usually achieved with moderate temperatures, a reset ECU (to erase anything bad the ECU may have learned), and often a little bit of high-octane un-leaded race fuel. On the street, power will be reduced, especially in poor weather, but at least 90 percent of the power should be retained.
For the same reason gunshots are loud, engine exhaust is loud. Sure, it might be cool to drive around on the street with that testosterone producing, chest-thumping, 150 decibel roar coming from your car… for about 5.3 seconds. Even the gentleman’s gentleman has got to use a muffler, or system of mufflers, on their exhaust.
