Re: FTE Perf - Exhaust/Cat question

That lovely rotten egg smell, to put it politely, can come from a faulty
cat. conv. however it could also very well be from unburned fuel exiting the
exhaust. This could also be the cause of the original converter going south.
Someone needs to measure the tailpipe emissions and determine whether or not
the engine is burning clean, I would suspect it's running way too rich.
