Every responsible car owner has an oil change done by a professional every 3000 miles. This keeps their vehicle running as efficiently and smoothly as possible. What not everyone realizes, however, is that there need to be some alteration to the type of lubricant used when temperatures tart to drop. For safe winter driving it is important to winterize not just your car but its engine as well.
So is bigger really better? To understand and to be able to take a side on this great debate, one must know what really happens and what purpose does the exhaust pipe serve.
Basically this device provides crutial isolation between the engine driven accessories, and the crankshaft. However, removal of this can provide a 10-15rwhp gain, but at a cost for long term use.
The RMM (or Rod Millen Motorsports) Cat-less Downpipe is the most commonly used. However many other brands exist. Some down-pipes, such as the Random Technology DP, feature an emissions legal high-flow recycle catalytic converters.
I have bought and sold thousands of junk cars, and just to be honest about it, several of the cars I have bought, were not “junk cars” at all. The owner simply wanted to get rid of the car, so to the owner it was a junk car, however for me buying it, definitely NOT a junk car! On many occasions I have immediately sold the car for somewhere between 2-3 times what I had paid for it in mere minutes of the transaction.
One simple solution exists. This solution is one of these that only the little man could have come up with. They found that water contains a fuel that can run any vehicle. Consider what this concept means to the world. Water contains hydrogen and oxygen at the same time. If you can split the hydrogen away from the oxygen in the water, you can use it to produce the combustion to run a regular car engine. It does not split the atoms directly but alters the water into a burnable gas mixture. One of these gases is called HHO and the other is known as Brown Gas. The average person can effectively use these as they are the same thing. You can do some research on Google and find out the same information.
I called my mechanic to find out how much a catalytic converter cost and he related depending the make, model,and year, any where from $185.00 to $1,500.00. He went on to state that if your mechanic wants to replace your catalytic converter and your vehicle is a 2005 or newer go to the dealer because most vehicle mfg. now cover the converters up to 100,000 miles. That is the good news the bad news is in Calif. they no longer allow or mfg. replaceable converters, you have to purchase a brand new one.
