reburning exhaust
Anyone ever tried running a small diameter line (say 1/2") from the tailpipe back up to the intake to see what effect it would have? Would you have to use an efie to get optimal results?

RE: reburning exhaust
Manufacturers already do that, It's called EGR(exhaust gas recirculation)

BUt- can you do it after the exhaust has been broken down by the cat?

Maybe I'll just try it and see what happens and let you all know if my engine overheats and has a melt down.-- hey- I only paid six hundred for the thing. It's a beater.

RE: reburning exhaust
Take a look at your latest smog report. See is any of the variables could give you more return, or has your car/cat done a pretty good job of burning most of the gas.

RE: reburning exhaust
What are you trying to do? Exhaust after the cat containes nothing burnable. The exhaust would take up space in the cylinder that fuel and oxygen need. Manufacturers use EGR not to enhance fuel mileage or performance but solely for emissions and detonation prevention. Good luck anyway I'm curious as to what happens.
