    'Emergency' Catalytic Converter Trouble Code Fix

    Gotta love the anti-fouler trick. I've helped several people do it to their cars and recommended it to several others. Way better than going electrical around exhaust works.

    Is the Makita 9227 polisher very durable?

    Thats the exact reason I went for the Harbor Freight polisher for $40 on sale. I'll rarely use it and wont feel bad when/if it dies or I loan it out and dont get it back.

    Reliability of current Subaru STI

    The new WRX is the best buy but there isnt anything really unreliable about the STI either.
