Recycling has become the catch all phrase often used in place of the 3 R’s. But in its truest form recycling means taking one thing and changing it, usually chemically, into another. This is not to say that recycling is without value; it is certainly better than putting the items in the bin where they will end up in landfills and leach chemicals into our ground water. It is though to say that before you place anything in the recycle bag, first consider if you could reduce or re-use it, because everything that ends up in the recycling bag will have to be altered before it can be used again. Even then it is cleaner to produce goods from recyclables than from raw materials.
So why does virtually every new automobile sold have exhaust manifolds? Because they are cheap to produce, and easy to install. Real cheap. Real easy.
Get the replacement tubing that will be placed where the catalytic converter used to be and then mark the tubing using a permanent marker to cut the right length. Again, using the reciprocating saw cut the new tubing at the desired length.
Have you ever picked up a bottle of fuel additive? You’d see the before and after picture of carbon buildup. Those little $6 bottles recommended for every 3,000 miles. Well, HHO naturally removes carbon buildup, and this is achieved for the price of water. Removing carbon buildup alone makes an engine more efficient and run cooler. A more efficient cooler running engine adds horsepower and lasts longer. As soon as you add HHO into your air intake you’ll immediately notice a smoother running engine.
catalytic converter reduces pollution. There are many household wastes that are non-biodegradable. Otherwise, they contain chemicals that can be harmful. When non-biodegradable materials end up in a landfill, they stay there for years and years. If they have chemicals, these chemicals can seep into the soil and pollute ground water. In some places, non-biodegradable materials are burned, and such an activity is a source of pollution.
First thing you should consider is to contact your trusted mechanic. Let them check your system first. Second, ask their opinions and then decide. Upon deciding, go to your nearest Honda aftersales or automotive shop.
The Tanabe Hyper Medallion, the discontinued Tanabe G-Power Medallion and the GReddy (SP) Street Performance seem to be the quietest. At anything less than full throttle, they are no louder than stock. But at full throttle they seem to “wake up” a bit.
I hope none of my readers experience this. If do, shop around before running to the auto dealer or the first repair shop. I would also weigh my options before filing an insurance claim. Shop around. Thanks for reading.
