Cabin filters on modern cars use something called activated carbon (or at least some of them do) which is basically two paper / cotton sheets either side of a fine layer of carbon particles. It looks to me as though your cabin filter has a hole in it and therefore is blowing carbon all over the inside of the cabin. I'd take it back to wherever installed ...

You need to check whether there actually is a cat in there or not, and exactly what the rules are. Most countries by the 90s had started enforcing emissions rules, and most countries' rules for classics are that they must meet emissions regs at the time the car was built. Clearly for an E-type Jag, the world wants them around as a moving work of art, and ...

Popping I too have a Tiger 800xc (2013) and have noticed it popping when downshifting and revs are too high for that gear. I did notice a significant difference in this behavior after 12,000 mile service, and using 91 RON fuel (not all brands and outlets are same... for me ARCO has worked best). At this point, I consider some of it as normal behavior. ...

First of all, the 5.3l engine (could be all of the Vortec LS engines, don't know) is thirsty. It drinks a bit of oil. Be aware you could be looking at up to 2 quarts between oil changes. I don't know exactly what the issue is, but it does have a bit of an oil control issue whether it has to do with leakage or burning. My '06 is this way. It has never ran bad ...

Possibilities Yes! Absolutely you can have this done. The quality of work may vary depending on the level of experience of the shop you commission to do the work but you could end up with something like this, if you want. I would not remove the entire exhaust and take it to a shop. How are they going to know where the exhaust should run without ...

I personally wouldn't drive around for very long without an exhaust. In the UK, we have a number of exhaust fabrication specialists who are able to build exhaust on the car for you. Typically these utilize stainless steel and come with a lifetime warranty. As an alternative, Bosul exhausts do manufacture a replacement system for your vehicle but it might ...

You could easily commission someone to make a "tube" to replace your exhaust, baring in mind if you replace the whole thing you will need to take various things into consideration such as exhaust hangers, flexi-pipe to handle engine flex (when the engine moves it will pull the exhaust away), etc Ignore what Zaid said about decatted exhausts, If you make an ...

I would not advise running with open headers or decatted exhausts. NOx and CO emissions are not a nice thing to breathe in. Plus the stench will make for an uncomfortable driving experience.

Attributes of Exhaust (Jake brake) and Compression Brakes Compression (Jake) Brake Jake brakes slow a vehicle by releasing pressure Jake brakes are operated at the valve train. Jake brakes open the exhaust valve at the top of the compression stroke. Jake brakes use the compression of the compression stroke to provide gas compression resistance to slow the ...
