Now I am reminded again why I wanted to try and clean it. I wish the stars had aligned better for the AB test of my cleaning. But remember, it was scientifically PROVEN, which means it must work!

Fine. But as has come up before, it likely is that cheap substantially because it has less of the catalyst, which is made of precious metals such as platinum. It will likely not last nearly as long as the OEM. But your mileage may vary...

Agreed. But as cats rust out here before they fail emissions, why worry.

Hey Mister! Have you considered going into the acid resale business? Do you have enough left to put into a suspicious package? Then I would just need to find a pot vendor and I would be in business!

Exhausts here rust from the outside in. Not from the inside out, as in most places. For most of the winter, with the amount of salt that's put down, and the constant rain, it is like driving in the sea!
We get frosty nights, so they salt heavily, then it rains during the days meaning they have to salt again the next evening. That continues for weeks on end.
Made worse here, as I live within 200 yards of the sea.

Platinum broke $1,000ozt the other day and palladium isn't too far behind.
So I say clean those cats.
If those prices go much higher we are going to start having problems with converter theft again.

These are garden variety powders in tiny quantities that I received from a mainstream retailer in the mail. You make it sound like homeland security is coming to my door!

Absolutely correct.
