    Is your car running rough? or is there are rich smell of unburnt fuel?

    If the answer is no to both of these, then you probably don't have a problem with the way it's set up.

      The vac hose for the reg just reduces the fuel rail pressure at high vacuum (I.e idle). At worst it will use a minute amount more of fuel.

      And to answer your question-
      A: no, it won't hurt anything like that.

          What's the smell?
          If the catalytic convertor is blocked up, gunked up or partially breaking apart it won't do it's job properly and you'll get strong smells out the exhaust.

              i thought that too, but like another thread sugested i use my cat unblocking tool to over come that problem. Yes the cat was blocked, you could clearly see the parts of the cat that were blocked. The exhaust sounds a bit better to

                Removing the material inside is to the same affect as non functioning material.
                The exhaust gasses are rich with NOx gasses and the likes and the smell is rather potent.

                Only way to dull the smell down is to put in a new cat convertor.
                You may habe an underlying issue but, the cat surprisingly has a huge impact on those stinky exhaust fumes.

                And yes, I have used that tool as well

                  I had a walker cat fitted to mine recently. It wasn't particularly expensive and seems to be good quality.

                    Heard good things about them Walker cats. Did it give you a nice note out the back as well?

                    About to put a new one on mine and was thinking either walker or magnaflow, both are pleasantly priced.

                      Howdy Pauly,

                      I had a walker muffler fitted at the same time. They both sound pretty good.

                      I had a muffler fitted only a couple of years previous, and it developed holes within about 12 months (some internal spot welds gave way leaving the holes in the outer skin ). So my main criteria when selecting Walker as a brand of choice was... must not fall apart. So far so good on that front.
