I just ordered some BG stop squeal. Hopefully it works better than the ceramic stop squeal I've been using.

So yes it's a turd, but I admire the fact that he made something. Lots of high end car owners never spin a wrench, because they either lack the knowledge, care, or fiscal need to bother with it.

Nope, the O2 sensor is associated with the 1st cats. The secondary is just a redundant system. Deleting the secondary cats will not cause a check engine light.

I'll check them out, but I fabbed spring collars to raise the car back almost to stock height, so it's not really riding compressed.

If you do I'd recommend buying an universal air setup then just having a fab shop make the collars fit the mounts. That's what I was going to do but I'm happy with the ride quality of the H&R springs.

Not from the secondary cats. If you remove the first cats you have to reprogram the computer to avoid a CEL. I don't recommend it unless you're racing.
