Turbo Tech Chat / Re: CAT removal sensor fix

Does anyone have the procedure for the post CAT removal sensor "fooler"?

Is this for a NA or turbo?

For the NA the second (rear) sensor needs to be spaced out of the flow by about 40-80 mm. You get pipes off the shelf for that, or can have it made up. Its basically just a section of 25 mm pipe with male thread that screws into the original bung, and then the sensor screws into female thread on the spacer.

For a XT it's easiest to have the code suppressed on the ECU, as they are "editable". I don't know if the mechanical fix works on XT's as well.

Looks like a professional job done there!

I just rebuilt mine with a $30 eBay parts kit. Still going strong.

A TD04 is actually a very basic turbo, not difficult to work on.

Sounds like radiator to me yes, the coolant does like to run down on the left hand bottom side by the outlet hose.

Hopefully its just the Rad or a leak and that the headgaskets are still fine.

Fill it up properly, dry everything off, and then start it up and see if you can see where the leak is?

Correct. I have a decatted downpipe and no mid box, but still have the stock back box. Very quiet. On a XT back box is everything noise wise.

Ask on the Facebook group, there were some Powerflow and Prodrive boxes available a while ago.

What does the coolant expansion tank look like? On the side of radiator. Any grey/brown residue there? Or bubbles? Level correct?

If there is hissing and bubbles at the turbo tank then either the coolant has been recently replaced and is still self-correcting the level, or head gaskets are blown.

NA SG's never had coil on plug setup. Only the XT afaik.

Very strange symptoms for a NA.

Does it still have the original catalytic converters?

No problems painting it if that is what you mean?

I had my steel wheels on my X powder coated black. Looked lekker, especially with the black plastic lower skirts and bumpers of the SG X.

Something gunmetal would look lekker with the white.

What car do you need them for Shadow?

I've got a set of 16" Impreza wheels (powder coated black) with 215/70R16 tyres on. Not all terrains, but light commercial Hanooks.

Problem with the Whatsapp groups is that you get every message about every topic (and off topic). A forum is much more focused. But oh well.

For a daily stick to TD-04 or maybe a VF43 or 48.

05 is overkill.
