|blk_on_blk||Yea didn't go thru with it ill just grab a new set while they're on sale at rv6-p...|

They might have to do some prep work before coating them, but I don't see why not.
What's the purpose though? Shed a small amount of engine bay heat? Or would it be a lot?

|blk_on_blk||That is what I meant by send them out... I know a place that can do it|
|November 22nd, 2013 02:16 PM|
Send them out? Just stop by your local shop. Shipping would be $50 there and back. Plus it's not noticeable if you get it coated since it's hidden beneath your bay..
Unless you have money to blow go for it brah

|blk_on_blk||I didn't want to start a new thread for this question... So I can pick up a set of used V2 precats that are in good working order this weekend. I was wondering if I would be able to get them coated or is it not worth it?|

|Atlas.46||Did your car pass emissions?|

|kdrevelle123||Well I was gonna do that because the precats are so close to the engine and produce a lot of heat. Then I would just have the one cat past the jpipe. Idk what I'm gonna do yet, prolly just get a v3 jpipe and change my 2 inch midpipe to 2 1/2 and leave the precats|

|Accordguy04||...seems pointless to remove the cats and then just add cats. Jus sayin lol|

|kdrevelle123||Im planning on getting pcds and jpipe too. But i was thinking about maybe getting a cat from like a v6 truck or something and putting it behind the jpipe anyone tried this? Or should i just not worry about it until i have to get tested?|

|2 Amigos||Yeah I dont wanna do that every 2 years. Haha|
|September 30th, 2011 06:24 AM|
|Accordguy04||Took me all day... but I think once you do it, you see what has to be done and I def could get it done quicker now. Hardest part is getting the heatshield off the rear car (mine was rusted to **** and I ended up just breakin it off), once you get that off it litterally falls right out.|

|2 Amigos||How long was the install? I am debating purchasing these and just switching out with cats every 2 years...|

|Accordguy04||Hard to tell... I have a Borla so its not that loud to begin with. If there is any, its VERY little. I LOVE how it sounds tho, the tone is just amazing.|

|Accordguy04||Yup, and I've had em on for I'd say 2 months now and no code. Well... I did have one pop up, It said bank 1 and 2 O2 sensors (top of cats) were stuck lean. But that code has been comin on ever since I put my Cold Air Intake on and it usually goes off on its own. So they really do work.|

+1 The PCDs come with Sims.
The top O2s just thread in same as factory, but the secondary thread into an elbow that threads into the PCD.

Only thing they check for here is gas cap integrity and for OBDII codes. No codes, you pass. No centralized testing, most lube places can do the testing and they don't look too closely, from what I could tell they look to see at the top of the engine if the O2 sensors are all plugged in.
How are you not getting a CEL? Looking at the PCD, there are two O2 bungs on each, primary and secondary I presure. How are the secondary O2 sensors not picking up that the precats are gone? Are you using O2 sims or non-fouler extenders?

|Accordguy04||I've heard of that before, but never had my car on a dyno for an inspection... none of the shops that do inspections around here even have dynos.|
|September 12th, 2011 08:31 PM|
cause here, if the vehicle is less then 5 years old, no emissions test is needed (they assume new cars are stilling running clean, and relatively lower mileage), but after 5 years and 2 years there after, it is
AND ALMOST every car goes on the dyno, other then extremely old ones (~1985?) which were not required back in the day still don't (instead they get a idle and 2500 rpm test); also cars with excessively low clearance or too large of a tire, or low profile of a tire FROM THE FACTORY (and they WILL make you put it back to stock, in order to run it on the dyno)(as far cars with those exceptions, again they run the idle and 2500 rpm test)
and YES they do butt-probe the car, along with hooking up to the DLC
|September 12th, 2011 07:57 PM|
That is not true at all. I'm from orland park and have lived in Chicago. I have an 03 350z that had hfcs among other mods and had emissions twice on it and they only plug in. Also had a 1997 Buick century and it was the same thing.

and as far as that diesel vehicle thing, certified independent shops still do those though

Real nice power diff. I'll have new dyno numbers in October.
