Default Stupid cat convertor....

Stupid thing took me almost 15 minutes to weld the heat shield back on. Beware of curbs. Especially when you're coming out of a parking lot and jump off the curb. That sucked. Watch out for that.

Apparently the person that owned my riv before me did that and dented the oil pan so bad it starved the oil pickup enough to cause premature engine failure at 77k 1 month after I bought it. BEWARE OF WHAT COULD BE AN INNOCENT LIFTER TAP ON STARTUP!!!!!

Also beware of midas installing your high flow cat for you. they did such a crappy job that 2 months after I got it the tail pipe fell off, I did not hit a curb or anything either.

Also try not to get rear-ended and have the downpipe shoved into the front sway bar. You can't bend that stainless even when its white hot.



Oh yeah, undercoating can catch fire.
