    Meron akong Kia Picanto 2005 A/T nagpapalit ako ng muffler sa mufflerland kasi butas na stock muffler ko. Magnaflow muffler napili ko para may tunog kaya lang nung linagay siya sa Picanto ko walang tunog so sabi nung taga mufflerland tanggalin daw catalytic converter ko. So pinatanggal ko na tapos pinalitan nila ng pipe... Medyo lumakas hatak niya kaya lang sobrang lakas sa gas pati bumaho labas ng usok niya. Plano ko sana lagyan ng resonator para mawala yung amoy pero hindi ko pa alam pano babalik sa dati fuel consumption ko. :| Any idea?

    ibalik mo na lang yun catalytic ang trabahu niya sa car ay convert yun mga harmful gases into non harmful gases sa pamamagitan ng chemical reaction kaya mabahu ang usok mo ngayon masama yan.tpos si oxygen sensor hindi na rin tama ang binibigay na signal kay ECU kaya yun fuel mo ay malakas kasi nga yun kanyang self learning ay hindi niya magawa.maibabalik lang yan sa normal kapag binalik mo yun catalytic converter.

    Ahhhh. Sir may idea ka ba kung san and how much catalytic converter? Kasi iniwan ko sa Mufflerland yung catalytic converter ko eh probably wala na yun dun.

    You can try going back for it. It should just ended up in their junk pile.

    A new one many years ago costs P12,000 at Nodalos.

    generic naman ang catalytic converter eh kaya nothing to worry kung anung brand pa yan or kahit second hand as long as transparent pa xa saka depende kung ilang sensor ang nakalagay jan. kase iba't iba ang mga emission standards ang ginagamit ng mga manufacturers. May dalawang Ox sensor at may isa lang. Kung dalawa ang Ox nyan, for sure mag iistored ng trouble code yan sa ECU kase walang feedback sensor eh. Lalakas ang consumption nyan kase nag gain ng extra power eh. At kaya naman lumakas ang power nyan, nabawasan ang resistance ng pag labas ng usok. pero ang sama ng effect nyan sa atin. Kaya the best talga malagyan ulit ng catalytic converter yan.


    thanks..

    nakatanim ba sa catalytic converter yung oxygen sensor mo? if nakatanim dito and sabay na inalis then you'll really have problem with your fuel consumption coz the engine will run on "open loop" only and hindi na mag close loop para ma adjust ng pcm ang fueltrim.

    Bad move. Reinstall the cat.

    The 'mechanic' at mufflerland is an idiot to even suggest the idea.

    ...Mufflerland at T. Morato? Had a bad experience there last summer. They replaced my resonator and the exhaust note sounded 'lata'. The Fat guy there insisted it was a leak in the manifold.

    Went to Nodalos at E. Rod and they told me that the replacement resonator did not have fibreglass insulation.

    Binalik ko uli sa Mufflerland at pinalitan uli. 'Fat Guy' heard a mouthful from me.

    oopss. wrong idea. but if you planned of having a Catback then it's good. But no, so put it back.

Remove catalytic converter replace with resonator
