    You will most likely still be running rich with or without cats. I have a catted y and I am still running a tad rich. The only way to fix that is getting a tune.

    I was a little skeptical @ first too, and it sucks not being able to drive your car for almost a week, but trust me, u won't be disappointed. He is a legit tuner that won't steer you wrong. You just tell him exactly what u have done to your car, and he will do the rest. Not sure if yours is A4 or not, but the transmission tune was worth the 150 bucks on its own. Nothin like spinning tires when shifting to 2nd gear in an automatic =)

    A week? OUCH! I only live 2 hours from his shop so turn around time for me would only be a couple of days. Speaking of which I need to get my car tuned soon.

    If you live that close, you should just ride on over and put the car on the dyno. That's always the best bet for tuning.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for the nice words guys!
