-BOSCH o2 sensors
-Reset computer

o2 Sensor

CAT was a mess and should have been replaced years ago..

What do you think of it? Is the quality pretty decent?

Re: XJ JEGS Exhaust, Stock Exhaust, No Exhaust, Video

Put 50miles today on the new exhaust. First 30 miles had the check engine light on, Then it went off so hopefully the computer has worked itself out.

The drone while accelerating is way too loud that you cant talk over it. However, at cruising speed it is pretty quiet.

Also deff a major improvement in power and response. I am sure most of which is from the new CAT though.

Quality seems decent enough, I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't stainless steel, it looks galvanized. But for the current price of 135$ shipped I would buy it again.

I will update with mpg numbers next time I buy gas. Last fill up I got 14.4mpg. To see everything I have done to the jeep check out my thread.

Year update. Jeep is still running strong. So far my best mpg was driving 800ish miles round trip towing two jetskis a 3 wheeler and as much crap as we could fit inside of the jeep and onto the trailer. Couple of huge grades to drive up and still managed just over 18mpg.
