Thank you for staying on top of this over the past few years. It would be great to finally see this come to market.

nice to know. He never answers my inquires as to status. I have maybe $1500 of my own money trying to help them help the VW community. Maybe he is too busy enjoying the new house.

Kinda on topic, yet off topic. Gabe just recently bought my brothers house a few months back.

I checked in with Magaflow to see if they have a release date yet and was told it's still in development. Would be a shame if it was never released.

I added a note to the BusBoys feedback entry to this effect. Ill ping EB/mods to perhaps make this a bit more prominent.

Keep in mind there are CARB approved CATs available at your local retailer, but the trick is to actually get them to fit. They will also need to be welded in place, or you can craft flanges and weld the flanges to the CAT then bolt in like I did on my '87 Vanagon.

Here is (as of today's date) a link to the CARB Executive Order listing of aftermarket CATs, which are the 'universal' type. Again, these will need to be welded up in place... if you can actually get them to fit:

https://ssl.arb.ca.gov/PartsSearchTool/CatalystSearchTool.aspx

YES... I know the point of this thread is to spur into existence a CAT that is a 'direct fit' and can be easily fitted up. But who knows when that will be?

Hi Steve. Tcash is back and you are too. Good times. Now if Skills would just go away all would be great in samba land.

We may not have as much smog these days (thank god) but with all the people, it is dangerous to drive on a highway and in the summer the air is still full of smoke from more forest fires due to the many more stupid people who live here. In the winter it isn't as smoky because it is usually illegal to have a fire in the fireplace since it can be clear, windy, raining like cats and dogs, and the anti fireplace people will still call it a no burn day.

That said I have written to Gabe at Magnaflow two times in the last 10 days with no answer but that tends to be his style until he knows something. I am told that the product is engineered - it is in their catalog but not for sale yet - and is awaiting on ARB to issue an EO so they can sell it. I offered to contact the Secretary at ARB as citizen Steve to try to expedite it, but Magnaflow said let them handle it.

I contacted them a couple if times. They let me know it was still with engineering and that it would be for several months yet.

I hear that SMOG testers in LA may be less vigilant when checking your CAT is ARB compliant. Always worth paying for a pre-test to find out.

Man, both of you missed the joke. I'll leave the original post up above intact; you can read it for yourselves. Laughing

About three months ago I added my email to their service that would notify me
about updates. Never heard anything at all.
