i was thinking why not check your vacuum gauge to see if you can get good braking at half engine vacuum pressure cause if you can get a pressure reducer for your vacuum tank thats at half your engines vacuum pressure then you just doubled your number of braking again??

Hmm seems that heat "may cause" wrinkles.
I think my under the hood temps may be a tad high, that or the location next to the cat on my vx might not be so good.
It did last since 2011, time to replace and relocate.

the original specs of 2ft by 3in comes out to 170 cubic inches(2.8 liters).

going off of external dimensions of the one from summit, that's 133ci(2.2 liters).

draw whatever conclusions that you would like from that.

Wow. I guess you're alright, which is good. FWIW, mine is on the passenger side, toward the engine compartment, between the battery and the intake manifold, above the transmission. It has been there maybe 6 or 8 months without problems. The CAT is probably 900 degrees sometimes, I guess. That's gotta be the issue. I have my build process in my modding thread if you are curious. (See link below.)

EDIT: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...tml#post412414

It's about 175ci

Cheers, james

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.
