    First i will share some details of the tuneup. (just for people who may be interested.)

    - OIL changed after 3500 KM, this time i put ZIC for rs 1050
    - Air Filter Changed for rs 275
    - Oil Filter changed for rs 300 (I think)
    - Labour charges for removing CAT, Full Diagnostic with Tool
    and Complete tuning rs 1500.
    Labour is a little expensive but now i know what to do myself, and what to get done.

    -Cutting the converter open
    -removing the filter in pieces.

    After this the cut was welded shut, and piping was fixed back in plcae again.

    Will discuss details of results in terms of performance later.

    it has been discussed eariler on pakwheels...removing the catalytic convertor hardly gives an extra 1~2hp...though drastically increases the emission level...

    @PP
    i agree, that's why i have yet to remove mine, but i have to admit it helps the engine rev more freely when the cat is out.

    Friends you are right , please DO NOT remove the cat if you are not facing any problems with your car !

    Actually the mechanic was convinced that it was choked since the pick of the car had deteriorated. frankly speaking after the full tuning and removing the CAT the cars performance improved alot.

    I checked the capillaries in the filter when it was removed. (about 30 % were blocked).

    But beleive me our petrol is not upto the mark in Pakistan and it ends up choking the converter and consequently your engine cannot exhale properly!

    Anyways, please do not remove it if not required. The results may not be as good as you expect if your car is giving no trouble!

    plus their will be an addition of a hollow sound from the exhaust when you press the accelerator once you remove the catalytic converter.

    well one day u have 2 get them removed coz they accumulate carbon on them n stop the exhaust flow,n the cure is to replace as car timming is adjusted according to intake n exhaust,but u wont find a new one easily or if atall u manage its an expensive item.so the remedy iis that if u get it removed then get the timming chkd or efficiency may drop.
    HONDAS are like GIRLFRIEND and, TOYOTA a life partner always with u even going is tough..
