The dummy sensors will help. The problem is where to get them. The WWW is full of references but I have not been able to find a pair for my chevy truck which is a 1999 5.3 with cold air intake, 1 inch intake spacer, JBL Headers, dual exhaust, Granatelli Mass Air Flow Sensor, Dual Flow Masters, JET programmer/ing, 3.42 locking diff. The truck is an extended cab. It will barely spin a tire jumpin out of the hole. At 30mph and well past 100mph, it will leave a late model 318 Dodge Dakota. Please E-mail me if you know of a company that makes dummy exhaust o2 sensors for the vehicle I described. ghostdog200000@Yahoo.com
3, 1 in each of the two manifolds and on in the straight pipe underneath.
No, the computer needs all three to have the oxygen sensors reading properly.
As long as you keep the catalytic converters and other factory emissions controls, there should not be a problem. If your vehicle is older than what Virgina requires to be emissions tested, you may be able to remove the Catalytic Converter and other factory control equipment.
Driver and passenger side coming down from motor can be seen from under hood coming from exhaust manifold not the ones under car running straight
Taking out the two Cadillac converters and putting a straight pipe on your Mercedes e430 will not damage your car.
It is possible to replace the catalytic converter with a straight-through section of exhaust pipe, but understand that doing so puts you in violation of pollution laws in most states and definitely Federal pollution laws.
5 inch straight pipes with no catylatic converters. If it is a diesel, DPF delete and 6 inch straight pipes.
First off, it is illegal to remove the catalytic converter. Secondly the vehicle will not run properly with the converter removed.
World currency converters can be found on the websites of most foreign exchange sites and newspapers sites. It is even possible to get a conversion by putting the search term straight into Google and that will return a response.
