Could a high performance ( as in us mpg guys) chip be made to electronically fool
the cat to be lit all the time?

If enough emphasis went into this one issue, wouldn't that pretty much end all this?

Any logical way of multipling an external plug in source of a cat pre-heat before
cold engine start?

I'm far from being Mr. Science, but thought stirring of the minds might help!

How about a custom cat with a baffle set of plates that open only one at a time,
maximizing early heat somewhat restricting the passage until heat is such that all
baffles open. Have it restrict again as rpm levels go down such as stoplight/signs;
and idling, only as safely needed.
