Doug to the rescue
, how's it going man?
I think more than any other member on here you've pretty consistently responded to my posts.
Sorry for not realizing there was a "thanks" button all this time.
Anyway to answer your query, "no". No cheater onboard, "why?"
Because up until now my car's ECU was never complaining about anything even remotely related to CC efficiency.
Of the 5 MILs I previously had, 4 of them were Bank 2 (both of them) high and low voltage issues. This occurred
due to a very poor mechanic recommendation and a stubbornness inside myself that I was going to let sb else do the
work this time so I could enjoy the results more. This resulted in 2 cut and twisted together with trailer wire and electrical taped O2 sensors (4 MILS)
and a header set that sounded like a lactose intolerant business man at an all dairy buffet (still a bit miffed w/ their install that I made them correct).
But to get back on track, I'm super curious as why NOW
the MIL indicates poor cat efficiency when before it was content to only bring High and Low voltage issues to my attention. I drove it around for a week and a half because I had nothing else to drive and no time to address the shoddy workmanship. The ECU had plenty of time to bring up poor cat efficiency during that period.
After all, nothing's different now besides I added true O2 extenders from Summit Racing and 2 new Denso Downstream O2s.
My work seems to have quelled all the previous codes, so my car's like "Ok then, on to the next"
