    Sure I'm near Alliston (south of Barrie). We do have a Tim's too lol. I could obtain some beersmif necessary.

    I think it's the drive shaft but need to look at the sway bar end links and some other things just in case.

    Msg me if you're interested and I'll send you my cell number to coordinate.

    Let me know when. Car issues seem to be solved so think I'm good for meeting up somewhere. How about the week of August 6th? Maybe a good week for the Thursday night meet in Vaughn area.

    Anyone who has had CEL P0421 with a Catted downpipe know how to fix it?

    I was going to replace the Catt and the O2 sensor but they are both expensive pieces.
    If I do one before the other I want to take an educated guess if even possible...

    I have a ATP catted downpipe on the car and this is the first time this have come up.

    if the code comes on, it's usually accurate... cat is bad
    aftermarket cats are made with inferior materials and usually last 2 years at best, so don't dismiss that

    Running frequently out of stochiometric can cause the cats to burn up more quickly too. I assume this is an aftermarket high flow cat right?

    I only ask due to the comment about cost. If for some reason you just need a stock one I have one for you for free.

    I have the EGR as my "not ready" for emissions so deleting that code would make my cat not ready.

    I reset the codes and they didn't come back and all my e-test stufff is shown as ready.
    The cat is probably on its way out or my car has gremlins.

    It could be gremlins because I had other stuff happen and never come back lmao...
    The cat has super low kms but a lot of WOT pulls on it. Maybe 100 tops lol... yay...

    Worth cleaning up all your grounding sources. I was getting similar electrical code triggers due to low voltages. Cleaning up the grounding points has helped a lot. I got one for the throttle pot in the car and some other weird ones.

    Passed emissions. Time to start logging on the CS manifold and throttle body

    I already saw a huge drop in WGDC, hitting 26psi with @ 50%.

    I believe one of the CEL's was turned off in my tune for the Cat so we had to turn them all back on except the ones for the EGR and VTCS.
    The CEL from the catalytic converter came up at the same time as a low voltage for the fan circuit so that was likely from a bad ground which I tightened down, as it was clean.

    No tricks involved, other than having the EGR system "not ready" but we are allowed that. The car should have passed a long time ago so I am happy I solved the stupid computer/electrical issues.

    Ah yes... the dreaded poor grounding issues. Our ECU I've learned is incredibly sensitive to poor grounding issues. With all my grounds cleaned up and tightended down I've have zero false CELs.

    Glad to hear you're all sorted! I have the EGR delete as well. I don't have VTCS deleted, but have cats deleted, so we'll see if I can tune those out and still pass.

    guess it depends on the code(s) for the cats... the ms3 had codes P0137, P0140, P0421 suppressed and the catalyst readiness test became "ready"... the EGR was the only "not ready" for the ms3, and this is with a VTCS delete with those codes also suppressed

    Good to know! I haven't actually even bothered to attempt to suppress any codes, or look at the readiness checks. Looks easy enough

    Anyone know what the bolt/screw size is for these clips? It's the one under the front bumper where the fender liners attach at the front.

    It's not the same one as the undertray 10mm bolts as those are too big for this particular clip.

    Car has been apart for a bit and I moved while I had stuff out so I'm missing some stuff in boxes and it's been a while since I took it apart

    Nevermind, I found the clips online, and looks like it uses an M4.8 (#10) screw.

    Anyone have a gen2 valve cover for sale? I looked on kijiji and ebay but there is nothing currently.

    Mine cracked by the bolt at the fill neck. It looked like I had a small leak so I wanted to tighten the bolt... and snap.
    No idea how it happened since I was using a 1/4 ratchet... I guess I am strong.

    I can buy a new one but wanted to test the waters first.

    Yeah, because the torque spec on those bolts is 71-84 in-lb...so like 6ft-lbs...a 1/4 drive ratchet you can pretty easily do 20-30ft-lbs without even realizing it.
