I did all three about a year and a half ago. I pulled it apart to clean the inside out and it still looks new inside.

It looks to me like it missed twice. Once at 150 seconds into the test and another at 185 and that was enough to fail the test. We can see about cooling down your engine and maybe just run 91 octane to cover any detonation due to higher operating temps.

Sounds like a plan. I went a head and ordered a CAT from Beno so can put that on the truck as well. Also next time I will probably use 3 or 4 bottles of Heet.

You bought a stock cat? That's like nearly double what you paid (stole) your Cruiser for isn't it?

My tires actually cost me more than I paid for the whole rig.

I just got back from emissions testing on the 80. half tank of premium and two bottles of ketchup heet burned down to almost E. I think my numbers were half as low as they were 4 years ago. 2 years ago the road side tests were fine.

.88 HC
3.3 CO
.42 Nox

Sweeet! I passed.

Congrats It is good to see that another 80 will stay on the road.

I received a CAT in the mail yesterday from Beno and I can't decide to put it on the truck or wait until I get the second one next month..... I am worried about running one cat the flows freely and one that is most likely clogged up.

I just had my LX tested, half tank of fresh gas and 1 bottle heat, passed well with 170K on stock cats.
