    can you weld a nut with threads for your secondary o2 onto your cat if you drill a hole for your sensor?

    yes. the cats guts are in the center section of the cat. the front and rear of the cat is usualy tapered to the enterance and exit fittings and are just sheet metal. you can drill through that easily without damaging the cat

    if you want the cat to work and the o2 sensor to also work right you leave the cats internals alone. you just put your sensor into your cat. so when you punched your cats out did you recycle that platnum and plaitium in it? plaitium is platnums sister metal. both are precious metals. both are valuable

    they are tiny but here in los angeles i have a company that i test their diesel fleet for emissions. they recycle this metal by melting computer parts and circuit boards and exhaust parts with acids and other cheicals. they get all the precious metals from the bottom of the barrels of acids they use. they told me how they do this so i asked if they would buy the exhaust parts. they did and i watched them melt it and get some small pile of platnum and platium that needed to be separated. i have a little in a bag. i thought it was cool since i am into mining minerals and all the cool shit that we used to do in the 50s in this country. one day i'll show it to my kids and tell em how we used to be. i'm also into metalurgy and structural engineering...as well as alot of other stuff i think is cool for buildin cars. i got 18 bucks for the larger amount of petals i sold that company which came from 2 cats

    how much they pay depends on the car the cat came from if you sell it like that--the whole unit. i seen them put the cat gut crumbs in the tank and i seen them pull it out later. some cars use pore or less precious metals. i've also worked for johnson mathey as a consultant regarding diesel emission equipment. they also are the company manufacturing the largest portion of cats for the worlds cars every year. they supply cats for like 40 percent of the cars manufactured every year. they said some companies request cats with larger amounts of precious metals for different results.
