Impressive! Carbon is rich fuel mix. Some heat in the tank or a stop at someplace that sells Ethanol and your good to go! Most of the 80 failures have been high NO. That is from to high of cylinder pressure or insufficient cats.

My friend down the street failed on his two weeks ago. His NOx was over the NEW NOx limit. It would have passed before, but not now. Anyway, two new O2s (Boulder Toyota matched Dan's price, by the way!) and he passed with flying colors. It was hard to find a technician who could keep the test on the line with the older vehicle throttle, but once someone was able to do that, his NOx was in the 2 range instead of close to 6!

Just thought I'd post as an FYI.

CO is usually a different issue, IIRC...like CATS

Good luck!

I want to really thank you guys ... I was having a great deal of anxiety about where to dump my money next and this thread has quelled it to a large degree. Phew! I have my emissions coming up here in August so I don't have to worry about saving any money any time soon; that is a relief!

Matt, how high is your EGT now with two cats and a SC?

Bummer Tim and Ige, but I'll the the eco friendly guy here and say that the system works. Tim, if your rig is polluting that much, you should repair it. Not trying to start a debate just sharing my feelings. If our club preaches, "stay the trail" "tread lightly" etc. Then adhering to emissions standards is something we should all do.

Just so you don't think I'm a whack job, I believe driving a 12 year old V8 Landcruiser with 200k on the clock is more enviromentaly freindly than buying a NEW Prius.

Good luck with the repairs.

What your Liberal thinking fails to realize is that these vehicle DO meet the standard that they were designed to meet. The new standards put in place nearly three years ago are designed to get these vehicles off the road by now having to pass standards that they were never engineered for. Our "free" country is shaping up to Liberal mind set nicely. We do have the right to have and bear arms but we can't get ammunition and recycling the key to our future so scrap everything and sell the scrap to third world countrys. Perfect!

If I can get my 1985 FJ60 that only runs on 5 cylinders to pass the emissions tests easily, I would think you guys with 80's and 100's should be able to get them to pass no problem. My 60 blows more smoke when cold than a pot-head at a reefer rally.

Haven't measured it since the SC install. Is there an easy way to do this? I'd be interested.
