Businesses feel the same way when choosing a place to locate, and hire folks.

Careful who you vote for.

Regarding the EMS system, I don't like the tailpipe location. You will crunch it. The best tailpipe exit would be a turndown right in front of the rear bumper. Also, I've heard that the EMS system will produce the infamous whistle.

So is the predominant issue that 15 year old Cruisers have aging cat's that need to be replaced because they've exceed their service life? Or is it more complicated than that?

Sorta.......the problem is that your elected officials don't only want your old cat off the road they want the vehicle it's on off. Beginning of last year the e standard was tightened by 35%. Those quick thinking readers out there quickly realize that their 10-15 year old vehicle was not designed at the factory to meet the new standards......hmmmmm. Now you even procrastinated too long and you can't even take the $4500 Cash For Clunkers money...... So to help the failing economy you need to go further into debt and buy a new vehicle that will meet the new standards so your borrowed money can further bail out failing American auto manufactures! Screw recycling....we have "hope!"

The NOX standards were reduced even greater then 35%, though not sure where the 35% number came from. I've heard 35% from my manager also, he attends the Air Care info classes on a regular basis.

1992 4runner as an example

2008 test pass maximum measured in GPM (grams per mile)

HC 4.0
CO 25.0
NOX 9.0

2010 maximum readings in GPM

HC 1.2
CO 15.0
NOX 2.5

I'd fix your EGR the correct way and see what your numbers return. Your cats could be ok but your numbers skewed due to the very high NOX readings. Not saying that your cats O2 storage is very good anymore and you still might need cats, just replacing them is masking the real issue of a failed emissions control componet.

Not to defend anyone, but wasn't it a Ritter push that got the state emission limits tightened up so?

Yes, but he didn't run on the message of "hope". This thread is in the tech section not political section.
