Isn't there a stock FD cat floating around the Denver/Colo Springs area? I thought there was a loaner I could use to help pass emissions.

If there is, I would greatly appreciate the use of it...

Thanks!

John

That sounds familiar but I can't think of who it is/was.

Cool, thanks!

I started to collect the parts for my single build, but I'm going to try to pass emissions before I tear the car apart. I have the new ignition coming, so I'll put that in with new plugs before I attempt to pass. I was always on the fringe with the Bonez hi-flow cat, so the stock cat should pass no problem.

I'll contact you when I get things ready if that's ok.

I'm still undecided between the BW 7670 IWG and the BW 8374 IWG. I'm also looking into E85 and the requirements there. I'm in no big hurry, so I want to do it right the first time.

I'll be leaving this Saturday for my 4 month trip to Africa, but my roommate will still be here so let me know and I'll set something up with him or give you his number if you're ready before I get back.

That's a tough decision. I really miss my 7670 sometimes, the low end brutality of it. But the 8374 still spools really fast and it lasts longer in the upper RPM range. So it's really just about what you're going to do with the car. Another thing is the 7670 would have a ringing sound during cruising. Not accelerating, just holding speed. And my roommate noticed that on his FC now since he's installed his 7670, so I'm wondering if there's some kind of harmonic noise with the rotary and that specific turbo.

I PASSED EMISSIONS!!!

I decided to give it a shot with the Bonez hi-flow cat to see how close I could get. I checked the air pump was functioning correctly, got the car good and warm and it friggin passed. I think the new ignition helped, too.

The guys at the test center were great. One employee was an RX-7 fan - he knew all you Springs guys. He said he owned an FC.

HC GPM 0.5063/1.5000
CO GPM 6.5145/15.0000
CO2 GPM 497.9037
NOx GPM 1.1563/3.5000

No worries, I totally understand. You did miss a epic line up though, had some really rare Lamborghini diabos show up.
