NEW 2004 S2000 owner. Just wanted to say hi and ask one quick question

Hopefully come out to some meets in AZ if they are held...

Just wanted to say hey and ask one question: I am putting a test pipe in because my cat is bad..... If I purchase a test pipe from invidia that says test pipe with cel fix is that all I need? I just need to screw the o2 into the bung hole that is there? I am buying a new o2 sensor while I am at it and I know I need to stay away from bosch. Any suggestions on a good but not so expensive o2?

I need to pass emissions in order to register the car!

Thank you guys.

I have been searching and reading tons and I probably could have found the answer, but I am new here so there must be some slack you give to newbs

How do you plan on passing emissions without the cat? How do you know the cat is bad? You need a cat if you're planning on passing emissions.

A long time ago I had a race header with no cat on my rsx and had an o2 simulator and passed emissions with no problems. I just don't quite remember how the set up with the o2 and sim were.

Well, regulations are different state by state. Here in California they have a sniffer at the tail pipe checking emissions at that end, plus visual inspections in the engine bay and maybe under the car. Be sure that someone who knows your state's requlations gives you the correct info.

I just took a 2006 g35 in and a 2004 trailblazer and they didn't even pop the hood. Just plugged into the obd II. My luck though they would put the sniffer in for the s2k ha.

Thanks for the info

Keep in mind that if you are given and fail a visual inspection (it is a federal offense to alter in any way the emissions system on a street driven car with a $2,500.00 fine) and if the judge really is in a bad mood that day you will go to jail for 30 days and have your car impounded. Have a nice day!

We people who have asthma thank you for not screwing with your car's emission system.

I have never heard of that but that does blow. I bought a f250 a few years ago and they did a visual inspection on it and it had no cat ( I honestly did not know either). They just told me to get one and come back. I just bought an aftermarket high flow and welded it on and went back and passed.

And, I didn't mean to offend everyone, sorry. I am taking the cat off today and I am just going to try and do this cleaning method to it (not gutting it). Except I have to order a new o2 today because I don't want bosch.

Maybe a high flow cat is a better alternative for you rather than a straight pipe...

Not quite but a good start (and I'm sure everyone close to you would appreciate it as well )

Re: Congrts

Also a new s2000 owner here in Texas .... 44k miles, bought in October. Have lots of questions but will probably peer through the boards to find them.

My amazing Eagle F1 tires are no longer in production unfort.

Texas' roads are horrible for stock 17'' rims... I now plan my routes based on smoothness of road instead of using distance. Mint condition otherwise.

Any tips for the new owner off the bat?
