Finally decided it's time to introduce myself after reading these boards for a few weeks now.
I'm Brendon from Kenora, Ontario and I own a 2001 Impala 3.4L Base Model.
So far the only mod I have done is a short ram intake I purchased on eBay.
Yesterday I ordered a 3400 down-pipe from ZZP as long as an 02 emulator. I've been getting a P0420 for a few years now and the limp mode is absolutely destroying my mileage. I figure this should be the ultimate resolution to that problem.
I was debating for quite some time on a PCM upgrade/tune + P0420 delete. Maybe in the near future.
My car sat dead for almost a year after blowing the engine at 225k km. In this past July, i purchased a 2001 Monte Carlo 3400 engine for 700 bucks in town with only 110k km on it. Using the service manuals I purchased awhile back, I swapped out the engines myself. What a job that was! But not as bad as I thought when all was said and done.
Car runs beautifully, minus the constant P0420. Also, still waiting to do a case learn as well since I swapped.
Enough babble. Thanks for everything here guys! What a wealth of information you've all made available.
