Is it possible that the lower compression and lower temp of combustion
that results might lower the NOX emissions on the turbo cars?
Sure, removing the cat might result in orders of magnitude higer
emissions. Let's say a cat-equipped car makes .0000001 GPM
and a clean but no cat car makes .00001
and an old non-emission car makes .1
Who gives a #(@)&*% about the difference between .000000001
GPM and .0001 GPM, besides the tree-huggers and the EPA and
when there's all those trucks running around spewing out 10 GPM?
In case there is any question I made up those numbers, but you
get the idea.
