    Hey cardoc,

    I had a question about your exhaust system on your car, specifically regarding the catalytic converters.

    I saw your "NEW PIPES" video on YouTube and it doesn't look like you have any. Does your car throw a CEL because of that? I'm trying to plan ahead if one of my car's catalytic converters ever gets hit going off road if I can just get rid of it without always throwing a CEL and getting worse mileage. I'm still not sure if the O2 sensors are a part of the catalytic converter or not.

    Thanks!

    The Walker is fine unless you're in CA.

    Re my post about whether the Walker catalytic converter was OK to replace the OEM one. Thanks for pointing out your thread, but my question wasn't answered. Could you advise, please?

    Shemmy, contact Ed at Xtreme Racing Tuning or Ed at Fast Performance Tuning about retuning your ROM. Ed @ XRT did 3 revisions to the ROM on mine prior to the SC installation and it improved throttle, low end and fuel economy. Other than that, keep the fluids clean, carbon to a minimum and use the highest octane available.

    Quick question for you - what are some minor improvements that can be made to the EZ30D? I've already tweaked the suspension, and I know that the intake's fairly well situated. Without going for FI or major motor mods, what would you say my options are?
