Correct me if I'm wrong, but, isn't the CAS on the exhaust cam on the 1.6?

Seems like it might be a good option for datalogging a older MS? and you cant beat the 45 dollar price tag either. http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/83-14631

I can't believe that passed emissions...but that's pretty cool. I will probably try a legit emissions test this year on the daily if I can motivate myself to put the cat back in the car. Thanks for posting it.

the picture or the unit? if the picture thats what they call it, the unit is made by raspberry pi. which runs a distribution of linux Debian iirc.

I see the potential of having a GPS style touchscreen with the ability to pop up tunerstudio and see whats going on similar to what the diesel guys are doing.

Why? The test was as legit as it gets.


I did replace my "test pipe" with the OEM cat for a day. (Guess what day)

Good thing we used flanges on the exhaust when we designed it.

There is a very perceptible difference in how the car pulls with the cat. Slower.

I had to roll-back spark angle to get my car to pass a couple years ago...but that was the old, sad engine.

I currently have 5+ tabs open that have to do with smoking brisket, pork butt, and modding my ECB smoker. I am pretty sure the rest of the day will be spent reading and researching. Well that is as long as developers stop asking me stupid questions and leave me be in my corner.

Whatever bad thing mysteriously happened to my engine on Wednesday morning seems to have mysteriously un-happened about half an hour ago, while driving. I left my laptop at home so I can't see what's going on behind the scenes, but it's now idling properly and making good torque at the bottom end.

This vehicle is beginning to perplex me.

Regardless, I think I'm going to pull it apart this weekend and replace the timing belt, water pump, etc. I shall make a point carefully to inspect the tension of the timing belt.

Why cant local people get off of their damn power trips... your hardtop that has fiberglass cracks, paint chips and overall needs paint is not worth 800 dollars... Thats the lowest price T have seen for a hardtop locally in close to 1.5 years
