I had American Racing Long Tube Headers & High Flow cats for about 2.5 - 3 years and during that time one year was super charged. Never had an issue. However, I've heard people with after market cats having issues similar to yours.

Good Luck with everything! Believe me, I feel your pain about having a bunch of issues with your super charged V6.
Managed to watch my boost gauge while accelerating today and saw it go up to 10 psi. I have the autolites back in with a 0.035" gap, see how that works. After this issue is fixed I'm done with engine mods, next up will be to get a 1LE differential so I can get up in RPM's.

I asked IPF but they didnt know...but is there any way I can see all of the boost numbers and stuff without the pillar? I plan on getting them one day. Just not a need right now and was just curious. Since you mentioned seeing the 10psi today thought I would ask everyone.

Does anyone know the answer to this? If so what would be the negative side effects to running without a o2 sensor on one side? And what's better having both o2 sensors and welding the wide band sensor into your long tubes or replacing one of the o2s?

I used a Autometer Cobalt Boost gauge in a regular gauge pod attached to the dash with double sided tape. Its a temp thing till I get the double pod for the pillar.

Got my hex vents today, got them in flat black since I plan on getting the stripes painted on eventually. Not going to install them until I get the car running correctly though.

If removing the rear O2 senser, won't that throw a CEL? Do you have a tune to delete that O2? IPF recomends putting the O2 close to the exhaust. One bank is good. only have a single TB and furel rate should be even in all the injectors. I welded mine in place. on the drivers side because of the wire lenght. Might do the passenger side later on.

Magnaforce. We installed Hex vents on a Camaro, when I saw your picture, I thought it was his car. Only diff is he painted the grill green. Check out the New Eng section and click on AugBBQ.

The 0.035" gap didn't work, hesitants and pops under boost. Feels stronger than the stock plugs though. Will try 0.030" next. How small is too small (giggity)?

Do you by any chance have pictures of how you welded/installed it?

No pics. I can guess I have some metal shavings in the inlet side of the cat. I had to remove the mig gaurd/cap just to get a decent weld. short tarvels, up hill. the auto hood did not work too good. I paid the price the next day.

Thanks for keeping us posted- still haven't changed mine and you're saving me a lot of effort!

Have you re-installed your Mace ported IM yet?

Yeah, got it installed, feels a lot better than the stock intake.

I had the plugs before at 0.030", but I was still getting hesitation but that was with the clogged cats. Going to see how they are now. Don't know if I should go down to 0.025" though.

So so close, no popping or hesitation with the A/C on, but with it off it has it but near 6000 rpm's now. Think I have to go to 0.028" now. Will see how it does tomorrow after putting 70 miles on it.

Arno recommends 0.031" (.8mm), I doubt you'd need to go below that.

Glad to hear the ported IM feels better- I'm not feelin' quite the oomph I expected down low from my dyno results, but that was done with my Mace on and now it's off.

I'm going to get it powder coated and then make the time to re-install!

Hang in there!

Will see how the car acts tomorrow, hopefully just a minor adjustment and she will run good.

Here is a video from last Friday when we went to the track. On our first pass I did a burnout for a few seconds to get the tires warmed up but the 60' timer was down so I don't know if there was an improvement. You can see my wife's awesome burnout though:



She forgot to turn off traction control...
