It was this time again. got the $200 gold.

last time it passed but the car has never seem to idle right.
any way this time was a big fail
                  CO2   O2     HC   CO   NO
15 MPH            13.4   2     294  .33  1365
25 MPH            14.6   .3    116  .17   460
I am thinking I blew out the cat so I get a new cat and a new O2

Put them in record time. But looking at the o2 wire it is still pegged lean I screw in the bypass on the AFM all the way in and still lean. I so I grab my old AFM from the verde plug it in and bam the idle is smooth for the first time I have owned that car. I set the by-pas with the white wire unpluged until the white start to oscillate then plugeged it in and got that L-jet hi-low tone. Went to retest pass big time

Looking at the old cat it looks good. This is the only failed one that still had the grid in side.

Also the old AFM looked strange there was a lot of glue on the bottom.
and it was mounted with mismatched screws and the square intake horn was missing.

I think the AFM was the only problem. But with a new cat the NO is 0%
