Emissions issues.

In July my registration was up, and as a condition of renewing the registration, I had to run my 13 PI through emissions. Which meant I had to replace the catalytic convertor that had been throwing a P0430 off and on for the past year and a half. I had a local shop replace the cat with an OEM part. ...

Re: Anyone tuning their PI?

Don't worry about that, it's still just a stripped out Taurus, no matter what Ford calls it. Go to a tire site, like tire rack, and put in PI and see what's available. Now search by Taurus, and see how your choices magically expanded by a factor of ten, for example. That is not true. PI tire size i...

Re: Dropped it off for the water pump...

Where did you go to get the water pump done at that price? I have gotten quotes in the $2k range.

Do you know what the part number the water pump is? Supposedly they were redesigning the water pump.

Re: Car Audio Upgrade - Head Unit, Speakers, Amps

Did you add door speakers to the back doors? What speakers did you put in? Any tweeters in the front a/b panels ? If so what brand and how does it sound / bump? I got a price of $1700 for 3 Rockford speakers (front and rear deck) 2 tweeters and 2 12 subs. I thought it was fair price but I’m not in ...

Re: Which catalytic converter to replace for P0430 Code

Be sure to replace it with ideally a Ford OEM converter for best results. Second choice is a 50-state legal aftermarket one. If you go for the cheapest one it won’t last as long and you might be replacing it again in a year. Initially I was going to go the cheap route as an OEM was more than three ...

Re: Which catalytic converter to replace for P0430 Code

Front side. Why not try the spark plug method. I "fixed" the P0430 by that method. Google "P0420" with "spark plug" together This is actually a continuation of this issue. I have recent done a GDI Cleaning, and replaced the plugs and the O2 Sensor as well as using several treatments of Cataclean. I...

You're in luck, as this is the easy one on the left side of the engine, on the radiator side.
I guess it isn't so bad.

Which catalytic converter to replace for P0430 Code

So after trying multiple times with varying degrees of success, only to have the code continue to come up intermittently, I have decided to replace the catalytic converter.

Does anyone know which catalytic converter to replace for a P0430 code?

Recommendations on Catalytic Converter manufacturer

The P420 code CEL code has been off and on for a while (more off than on), so I am finally getting around to fixing it. As of right now my '13 PI with Eco is at 165k miles. The two options I have for aftermarket catalytic converters are Davico and DEC (OEM is literally more than twice the cost). Any...

Re: Suspension parts

Just an update.

Replaced my shocks/struts and springs. Quite an improvement.

Sadly also I needed my sway bars replaced which was done.

However they also discovered my tierods and my rear wheel bearings are on their way out as well.

Re: Full Range Signal to 6x9's?

AFAIK the stock radio and amp is kind of crap, and they don't have a sub out signal. I really don't trust these all-in-one replacements which is why I went the way I went.

I am curious to see how that aftermarket unit works.

Re: Suspension parts

Well I heard back from both of them. There does not appear to be a Quick Strut Kit for the PI. The return rate from the strut kits is different than OEM spec, which I assume has something to do with the spring used in the Quick Strut kit. Just for reference OEM Strut Spring #DG1Z-5310-N - Police Int...

Ok, for the shocks: OEM DG1Z18125A, or Monroe Service Service Shock 550058 However, it is kind of a nightmare tracking down the struts. When searching by the VIN of my car, I get the following OEM Parts for the struts: DG1Z18124U, DG1Z18124W, DG1Z18124X, and DG1Z18124Y. Which are the right and left ...

Suspension parts

I am going to be replacing both the front struts and rear shocks on my 2013 PI/w Ecoboost.

Has anyone else done this yet, and if so what were the parts you used?

Is there a quick strut available for it?
