Most people climb into their car each morning, start it up and drive away. As long as the vehicle starts and sounds alright, we don’t consider the small details about the different systems that make up the entire car. However, the moment something begins to sound funny or act funny we become more interested in those minor details and parts.
It depends on the condition and wear on the stock clutch. If it is in good condition, yes, it will hold the power, pretty well in fact, although you may experience clutch slip while at full boost in high gears such as 5th and 6th. If you drive vigorously, meaning you run at high boost frequently, then the life of the stocker will be GREATLY shortened. Be surprised if you see an extra 10,000 miles after BPU(TM).
Yes, the stock fuel system is very safe and reliable to 450RWHP, although I would recommend a fuel pulsation damper bypass. Anything over that, and I would highly recommend having the car dyno’d, and using a wide-band O2 sensor (not a cheap A/F gauge connected to the stock O2) to check the fuel ratio at your high boost setting. 11.5:1 would be a safe fuel ratio.
To remove this part of the car, position yourself under the vehicle, until you are facing the catalytic converter price guide. You will see pipes that bolt into either end of the converter. Unbolt the system starting from the back, moving forward. You may find that the bolts themselves are rusty, and will need to be forced open.
AC’s radiate the heat. They process this with a cool liquid and then expelled as the air inside the car. Pretty complicated to manufacture yet they provide us with the comfort we need over miles of deadheat traffic on the freeway.
Using the MIG welder, tack weld the exhaust tubing that is between the two cut sections of the exhaust. The tack weld is a small and fast kind of welding that secures two pieces together. This however is temporary. You have to make sure that the alignment is straight and that there are no gaps between the tubing before a permanent welding could be done.
This unused fuel that you paid for is literally being wasted and cooked by your catalytic converter. Why? Because your cars engine isn’t efficient enough to utilize all that dino goop, so the EPA made the catalytic converter an automotive standard. Well, not all is lost… if you use HHO, you not only burn and put to work all that otherwise unused fuel, you also emit cleaner emissions.
