    hello fellow tuners, i would just like to share a lil info to maybe help someone out. i have just bought me a 91 civic hatchback, (the only older model i havnt built, example:eg,ek,eg) anyways i just bought it and i was having issues, no power when car was underload, o2 cel after 3 different o2 sensors, it had no power, wouldnt go over 60mph only if i really really pushed it. searched EVERYWHERE to find help. i replaced fuel filter,ecu, o2 sensor,.... come to find out my cat was clogged!:ph34r: i have never had this problem and never thought it could effect the performance as much as it did, but yupper it does!:eek: so if anyone is having about the same issue it would be a good idea to check it out. hopefully this helps.
    goodluck and happy building!!:D

    hmm..a little overkill on back pressure ... lol

    How long did you run your engine like that? It could easily lead to more problems. :eek:

    Let me guess you punched the cat out? You must have felt a good gain from clogged to hallowed out.
