ORIGIN – In the 19th century, the gasoline portion of the refining process, was first considered to be a ‘waste’ product of extracting the purified crude oil. Later on, it was discovered that it could be $old as fuel, instead of just dumping it back in the hole as had been the tradition.
Scrap metal is the end product in its lowest possible form. A product is created, used, sold on Ebay, used some more, given to your 10-year old nephew, used a few more times, and finally thrown in the trash. But before it is thrown in the trash, you may not realize it yet, but this trash may be worth something. Ultimately, you are no longer using the item for the intended purpose, but rather, sending the metal back into the furnace for reuse.
Hence, the human body has the digestive system and the excretory system. Likewise, the truck has its own emissions control system, and then the exhaust system. Both systems help the truck filter out combusted fuels as well as noxious waste or emissions. Noticeably, both the human body and the truck follow the same principle.
Above all other factors, the most common reason for tire failure is a lack of pressure. A lot of people are unaware that a small amount of pressure seeps from between the membranes of their wheels’ rubber. Over the course of a couple of weeks, the pressure loss in undetectable. Over several months, however, it can be substantial.
Using an EBC is the safest way to raise boost, it will prevent spiking and over-boosting. But it really comes down to your budget. If you can afford an EBC, get one. If you can’t, go with a MBC. And always keep an eye on that boost gauge. And whatever you are using to control boost, remember to not get carried away, I don’t recommend going regularly over 18psi.
Just unscrew the bolts of the exhaust and disconnect it from the catalytic converter recycling. Remove the system from the hanging brackets and keep it aside. Install the brand new exhaust system to the hangers with care, making sure that all parts are attached to each other firmly; so that they don’t fall off while driving. Once done, go for a short test drive and, later on, check for any leaks. If there are none, then this proves that the replacing process has been done accurately.
The hot water heater will almost always contain copper. This is considerably more valuable than the shell, for instance, so take the time to remove valves, tubes and wires that might be made out of copper.
You have to cut the tube on either sides of the converter. Use the reciprocating saw as well as the metal blades. Leave an allowance of 2 inches of tubing on the ends of the converter for the needed spacing. Allow the catalytic converter to fall by its own self but make sure you are not underneath it when it falls.
