In the award-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," Al Gore calls on us—the inhabitants of the Earth—to do something about global climate change. Since then, this film has made global warming a household term. The increasing environmental consciousness in the society has posed a challenge to the automotive industry, one of the major contributors to environmental damage. In answer to stringent federal standards and societal concerns, automakers have resolved to produce cars with low emissions. One of these solutions is the catalytic converter, a device that now comes standard in every vehicle.
An integral part of the exhaust system, the catalytic converter converts harmful by-products of the combustion process is into less noxious ones. These harmful substances—hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide—cause smog, acid rain, and health hazards. The catalytic converter uses two types of catalyst with precious metals such as rhodium, platinum, and palladium coating to maximize the surface area for exposure. This setup makes the conversion more efficient.
Performance catalytic converters like the Pacesetter catalytic converter not only help control emissions, but also make sure that the emissions do not get in the way of your vehicle's performance. Using a more effective catalyst, the Pacesetter catalytic converter takes in faster airflow without compromising its main function. Because it is made with a larger honeycomb catalyst, this device becomes more efficient in its task. Its durable and thoroughly-welded stainless steel tubing can be polished or chrome plated to prevent it from rusting. It also has a heat shield made from OEM specs. You can also opt for a customized Pacesetter catalytic converter for your vehicle besides a universal fit one. Whichever you think is best for your vehicle, you are assured that they both meet the strict emission standards set by the Air Resources Board of California and the Environmental Protection Agency.
