If you are anything like we are, you have been finding yourself thinking and being frustrated about the rise in gas prices when you go to fill up your tank. You have also probably considered purchasing a hybrid vehicle. The small amount of savings in fuel with these cars is not enough to warrant the $30000 spent on the vehicle itself.
A significantly much harder problem to tackle is coping with an engine that emits a whirring sound that just get louder as the speed increases. As a matter of fact, any noise that increases and decreases in intensity as the engine would go to higher or lower rpm may cause problems.
Their condensers can be mounted at the grill too and so can accumulate more air to prevent them from heating up quickly. When you have them installed, expect your system to go chilling.
Stay Legal. Depending on where you live and how you drive you evo there may be different laws you will need to know regarding a new exhaust system. Most states require that vehicles have catalytic converter s installed, Although, not all states check, but if you get caught with out one the fines are outrageous. For off road only or race cars no catalytic converter is fine, this is commonly called a straight pipe, or test pipe. For a street legal car, a high flow cat is recommended. This will add to the cost of your exhaust system, but there will be no power loss like there would be from using a stock scrap catalytic converter price guide. Some states also have noise ordinances, so the sound level coming from your tail pipe needs to be below the legal limit to keep you compliant.
Most emission samplers are five gas analyzers. That means they “see” or measure five types of gases. The five gases that will be measured are HC, NOX, O2, CO, and CO2. We will start with HC or hydrocarbons. HC’s are simply another term for unburned fuel that makes it through the engine and out the exhaust. HC’s cause smog and and are not good to breath. NOX means oxides of Nitrogen. NOX is a by product of highly heated and compressed air that has nitrogen in it. NOX is another bad emission to breath at high levels. O2 is leftover unburned oxygen in the exhaust. Although O2 is obviously not bad, it is tested for to look for people trying to cheat the test.
So burning the brown gas as fuel could help in increasing O2 levels. This can be of great help in highly populated area, where O2 levels are seriously low. While if only hydrogen is used, H2O would be its waste product. Though, it is not harmful, but it would not increase O2 levels that could be beneficial to a lot of places.
Keep in mind not all cars have aluminum rims, and do not be dismayed if you go to sell a catalytic converter at a scrap yard, and they tell you it is an “aftermarket” one worth only about $5.00-$10.00. In any case if you read and follow these instructions you’ll understand how to buy and sell junk cars for profit.
