Got a 2003 with a Tanabi exhaust, Invidia header and a test pipe instead of a cat. The car also has a Comptech supercharger. I want to put the stock cat back on in hopes of clearing up TPS problems when the car is cold. What has to be changed in the tuning of the car? (the car also has a Hondata fuel management system on it) Anybody have thoughts on this? I'm in the Portand OR area in case anybody has a recommendation on a good S2000 tuner in the area.

Maybe post this under one of the supercharged tuning headings? "No cat" is the topic here, not tuning.

As for a tune contact whoever installed the supercharger as it had to be tuned when that happened. I'm under the impression Portland Oregon has mandatory emissions testing and an "off road only" supercharger and "off road only" Hondata engine management system (ECU) won't pass.

You should not spend a dollar on this problem. If the dealer sold you a car with issues, they have to repair it.

This is why you paid the 2-3k premium to buy from a dealer vs buying private party. You have paid for their service, use it.

Default Done

I even talked to a lawyer to figure it out and it was totally my bad that I didn’t check the contract carefully. And the word “as is” is what you need to be really careful. There is another word says “no warranty and no help for emission test blah blah.” I was just stupid. I didn’t know this thread is still active. Before you guys buy a vehicle, please check underneath the vehicle.

By the way, I got a used oem cat though. I saw some threads says that you wouldn’t be able to pass the test with Berk HFC and it will decrease horsepower with oem exhaust system
