When I got mine, I expected to have no problems, but after a couple months it started throwing a CEL for insufficient catalyst. I dug around on here and found a thread where people seemed to think that was kinda normal.
my thought exactly chris...i want one to complete my exhaust setup..was gonna purchase one with the purchase of a comptech header but why bother if its going to cause more problems than having a stock cat.would a ls with just i/h/c/e run any richer or leaner to need fuel tuning to prevent premature cat failure?.any other suggestions?
I had a Carsound Cat just recently "hollowed" out because the filter was dislodged (aparently to either ice wedging as result of water build up, or running rich which can't be tested for my purpose) Currently I am waiting to replace mine because it is hollow and a basic straight pipe but not restrictive enough. Anyway, Airmass aparently has a relatively affordable one with a warranty and is aparently of good quality. IF anyone has an Airmass Cat message me as I am interested into there quality.
i hope there not made by the same people cause them renaults are a pos..lol...would a itr cat be a decent upgrade if i wanted to have an oem cat beteen my header and exhaust...will it breathe better than the ls cat with those other exhaust components...
The whole fact that the Honda OEM cat costs about $1000 means that OEM will last much longer - more than 100kmiles I'm sure. Anything cheaper in price is cheaper in quality - what can you expect from a $150 cat?
