Subject: FTE Small - Exaust back pressure

I just redid my exaust on my 90 2.9L Supercab 4x4. I have JBA headers
and Y pipe, and VERY high flow converters, topped off with a gibson
stainless steel exaust. Sounds great and has noticably more power. I had
bought a Random Technologies high flow cat to replace my factory dual
setup (they have 164,000 Miles on them.) But the one I ordered was a
universal cat, when I got ready to put it in with the cat back system I
noticed Fords wacky Y pipe outlet that wouldn't let me use regular
header couplers!! UUHHHGG! I was ticked I should have noticed it before!
So meanwhile, until I decide if I'm going to keep it and add it in later
I took the factory cats and a heavy long steel spike and "gutted" them
completely! It was a wonder my truck could breath! It was a mess in
there! I popped them back in, hooked everything back up and it runs
great! Still looks stock to! My new converter looks nice and is well
made but I just may send it back!

I did the same to my 86 STX 4x4 (2.9L) but now Im getting really bad gas
mileage. I replaced the o2 sensor but that didnt help. I talked to some
people about it and said it could be that the o2 sensor is geiitng a false
reading because of the increased airflow and sending more fuel to the engine.
Hope yours doesnt do the same. And anyone with any more info please respond.
Thanks--Chris
