That being said... I can't argue with a lab's statement... But the EPA documents outlining the 511 protocol seem to be a bit unclear... Is the 511 their own evaluation program that they do (as the introduction states), or is it something else?
Ok, I skimmed over the thread (12 pages!!!!) and didn't read all of "sabertec's" posts. I was looking to see how long he/she lasted, and it seems she/he was still around at the 9th page.
At $150, it's 3 times the cost of my sucker-limit, so I'm just gonna keep trolling around for information on it.
It claims to reduce emissions (mostly during the cold start-up phase?). It makes me think it has a "filter" that you need to clean, but maybe it's just back-pressuring the exhaust into the cat in order to "cook" the exhaust a little more?!?!?!?
Here's their diesel emissions gizmo that they used as the origin of the blade :
Sabertec IDPF Technology is a breakthrough in PM filtration. Impact Diesel Particulate Filters cost significantly less that catalytic technologies, they are highly effective in filtering PM 10 and PM 2.5, and unlike conventional technologies, they are capable of working with high sulfur content fuels.
Would this IDPF thingy be directly applicable to a normal gas driven car as a post-cat device? Hmmm, maybe not, because particulate matter is not as big a problem with normal gas cars.
