    like i said get a universal cat.. you may need a valve adjustment.. i went through the same thing you did..i failed like 3 time before passing, luckily he would see it was failing miserable and VOID the visit so i could come back after fixing something.. i tried absolutely everything.. ask these guys..

    well, retarded the timing 2 degrees, changed coolant and thermostat, and had the valves adjusted, and still didn't pass. i'm thinking i might just try a new OEM cat.

    Valve adjustment and Miller Cat and the car passed no problems. According to pre- and post-tests, the better cat helped more than the valve adjustment.
