Solo cat back exhaust g8

Totally the only way to get rid of the "wasted" r.

They are more costly to work with and have a higher center of gravity but the trade off is worth it.

Some people (not me) have reported problems with them. I have not had any problems with mine. I had them professionally installed. One of them was replaced for some reason. I'm not sure if it had a problem or if it was a replacement.

Yes, it is possible. You will have to remove your catalytic converter though, that would help.

I've had to pull the catalytic converter out of my car 2 or 3 times, mnly just because I can't open the intake/outlet with the engine cold, I could have killed myself if I kept leaving the car running. I was just curious if it would mess anything up to remove it and still have a chance at putting it back in.

I didn't. It's possible though but that isn't what I'm talking about.

You sd you changed from the factory catless setup to a catalytic converter with 4 pipes, is that correct? If so then it would be the catalyst that's the problem, and it's unlikely that you could get a better sounding exhaust with a catalytic converter with only 4 pipes.

The one that I bought does have 4 pipes. The one I put on, that I have now, is a catalytic converter and 2 pipes. Both exhausts are identical, only the factory has 3 pipes, the vf3 I put on has 2 pipes.

Yes, the car has an original catless setup, which it runs fine on. This car has the catalytic converter which I put in, and was designed for my car and it's size.

You are incorrect. The reason I had an engine noise problem is that the catless setup sounded just like the catalytic converter.

It was the exhaust system, not the catalyst or pipes. I changed both catless pipes and the converter with the 2 pipes. My problem has been that the catalytic converter with 4 pipes gives me the same engine noise as the catless pipes.

No, I didn't mention catless pipes, I spoke about the one you replaced which has two pipes. There are many combinations and the best one for you car will be determined by the measurements of your car.

My car has a 4-1 catalytic converter, it was made for the factory exhaust.

My problem: I'm very uncomfortable when listening to the engine, I can't hear a difference between a high rev and low rev.

I've gone through the manual and did the following steps:

- I disconnected the r conditioning compressor

- Put a tape on the compressor to make sure I didn't activate it

- Changed the engine oil

- Flushed and adjusted the distributor/camshaft sprocket/distributor adjusters/oil pump pulley

- Changed the spark plugs, put them in the right plug tray and changed the plugs to no. 8 wire connectors

- Flushed, adjusted and changed the plugs

- Put in a 1L bottle of oil in the oil tank (only for the distributor)

- Ran the ignition system to see if it worked

- Put the car on a trler to have the radiator looked at

- I was told to look at a new oil pump pulley

- I replaced the r conditioning compressor belt, and then I was told to change the catalytic converter, but I don't think it's related to the low performance

I'm not sure what I have to do and I have a few question, mnly about the catalytic converter:

- How can I know if the catalytic converter is the reason of my low engine performance?

- I think there is some metal or parts in the catalytic converter that can cause the problem (?)

- How can I change the catalytic converter? The manual says to replace the whole catalytic converter (in the passenger compartment)

- Is there something else in the catalytic converter that can make it malfunction?

- I found that if there's a catalytic converter in the car, the exhaust fumes are diluted with more r, right?

- How can I know if the catalytic converter is the reason of my low engine performance?

The catalytic converter is most commonly the problem, and most repr shops don't even touch the engine.

- How can I change the catalytic converter? The manual says to replace the whole catalytic converter (in the passenger compartment)

First thing to do is to see if you can get the converter out without causing further damage. Do this by first disconnecting the battery cable and removing the r conditioning compressor belt. Take the belt out, and carefully remove the fan motor.

You may want to take the cat out, but this isn't a 100% sure way to know that the converter is causing your problem. You may just be lucky and the car will run great. If you do remove it and the car still runs badly, then you're probably going to have to replace the entire converter.

- You mean take the whole thing out?

- And, in case I do take the whole thing out, how do I know that I'll be able to put the whole thing back together agn?
