Hi everyone... I'm new to the list!
I need to know what you mean by gutted. Does gutted mean it is gone? I
just purchased an 82 Vanagon, but I just found out it does not have a
cat. We want it to pass emissions so we will have time to save up the
money for the cat...any suggestions? It has 106,000 miles, it runs
great. Needs a tune up, but other than that it is great!!

In a message dated 4/4/00 5:25:27 PM Pacific Daylight Time,
My cat was gutted some time ago, and I've passed Arizona's
stringent emissions test (same as California's as I recall).
heard (on the evening news) that although cats do remove NOx,
with sulphur dioxide, which is/may be worse.
Bottom line on this is . . . Oh hell, I don't even begin to
know what the
bottom line is. Probably we should all drive less, or maybe
not at all.
NO, I DON'T WANT TO START A THREAD ON HORSES.
My CAT on my syncro is also gutted. With everything perfectly
tuned, I also
pass the emissions tests in flying colors. Although vanagons do
have a high
hydrocarbons at IDLE before the CAT in which the CAT will
reduce. I do have
more power with a very slight different exhaust note. See ya,
