Right?! I am still running the OEM 1998 CAT and legitimately passing CA smog testing with much room to spare. I have spent maybe $50 to acid wash the thing twice in 4 years. 274,000 miles of exhaust through this CAT. I'm pretty pleased.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
