    I've been crazy busy with life but about a month and a half ago I got a CEL (bank 1 upstream lean). Had the O2 replaced (didn't have time or warm place to do it myself) well 3 weeks ago the same code came back so i figured I would gut the precat and clear the code. Today the code came back so I figured I'd replace the fuel filter early because my g/f said it seemed like it was running out of gas. I opened the old filter and it was way way too pluged up for the miles on it. I'm planning to pull the gas tank this summer to make sure its clean (and replace the sending unit).

    I hope I got it fixed now.

    Nothing today but on Sunday I went to where it's stored and set some fresh mouse traps (never hurts and I'd rather have 'em and not use 'em than have a shredded interior!) and also pulled the aussie headlights so I can start converting them to have the appropriate low-beam cutoff for a LHD vehicle. I'm hoping to get those done before the salt goes away and it's time to bring it out for the year. If I have time I'd like to try to get the pins for my aerocatch latches cut to length and installed as well.

    Your problem is that a lean condition has ZERO to do with the catalyst. Lean conditions are 99% of the time a result of a vacuum leak on the intake tract.

    Looked at it covered in snow and ice in my driveway as I parked my truck next to it.

    Also, you say "lol" too much.

    Supposed to get into the 50's here starting this weekend (after 2 days of snowmageddon today and tomorrow), so hopefully I can get it back out on the road.

    Left it parked in my driveway since snow and ice is expected for the drive home this evening.

    Well you only drive it it under 45 degrees and I'm saying that its under 45 here a lot. So your 'winter' car would be daily driven pretty much half the year.

    Score!! While at the first junk yard I found 2 cougars to pick from. And I went to the second and I found a SVT Contour with the engine completely unpicked! Interior gagues upper and lower manifold, throttle body and braket, everything is unpicked and clean looking, minus the stock air fliter which is beat up. But even the body still looks okay.

    So I found my entire svt lite upgrade for $100 dollars for all parts. :D
