You could always gut the air pump.

If you remove the vanes, seals, springs, etc, you're left with a couple of bearings, and a rotor that spins freely on them. Sure it's still excess rotating mass,...

Won't HC be too high because there's not enough air for it to react?

You could probably get away with just a long rubber hose with a check-valve in it for a temporary fix if you lost the original...

My car's not turbo. (Crazy, I know.) Right now it's got an rtek 2.0, which is fine for adjusting fuel/timing but i'd like to put some of these now-unused emissions solenoid outputs to better use (aux...

You can keep them without all the emissions nonsense, but you can't run them off exhaust back-pressure if the cat's gone.

Don't you have a S4 RTEK 2.0 somewhere dude? That would be a better idea than a FCD or some piggyback nonsense.
Let me know if you need a hand getting a Palm PDA up and running to tune it.

Yeah some kind of control mechanism is sort of a given. You could always do it on the cheap with an RPM switch. :)

The fun part is they sometimes continuity test just fine. It's only once you try to pull a dozen amps through it that it flakes out. The first time this happened on mine it had me scratching my head...

I've fixed 3 so far that have all failed the same way. The trace on the PCB can't handle the current. Bypass that with a wire from the actual switch to the plug and you're good to go. No splicing or...

From what I understand it's an emissions thing. For the catalytic converter to work it has to have a certain ratio of unburnt fuel, oxygen, etc. If you run leaner, you get more NOx and less HCs, and...

Getting rusted to hell exhaust parts off is a bitch, but your engine will love you for it's new "high-flow cat" ;) (Mine has a RB presilencer)



This is why I wish my mom hadn't trashed mine. :(

The lumbar seat pumps aren't really designed to run continuously in a hot, dusty engine bay either. I've had one on my 6PI for several years and I'm on my second one.

If you're handy with a soldering iron and a multimeter, bypass the burnt out trace on the circuit board with a bit of wire. The plug and harness can handle the amps, it's the board that can't.

Test the diodes in your warning light cluster. Most digital multimeters have a diode test mode, sometimes it's built-in to the continuity test. A good diode will conduct one way but not the other.
