Pics of the $200 Hennessey SIMS

Here's what you get for $200! LMAO

FYI-These can be found at any autoparts store (e.g. Pepboys, Autozone, etc.) and are called sparkplug-arrestors; typically selling for around $6 a set.

Re: Pics of the $200 Hennessey SIMS

I could have told you guys about this. We have been using things like these for years to beat OBD2 2nd O2 codes, usually on turbo cars without cats.

Basically for each unit, you take 2 spark plug arrestors (sold at Pep Boys) and put them together. These things just happen to be of the same thread as O2 sensors. Before doing so, you have to drill through one of them, and use that as the top unit. The O2 sensor screws into it. Reason for drilling through the first one is because the O2 sensor will bottom out if you don't. What this whole contraption does is bring the O2 sensor tip farther away from the exhaust flow, and also limiting the amount of exhaust that the 2nd O2 sees. It will see enough not to trip a check engine light code.

To do this on the Jeep, I think you may need 4 pieces. 2 for each rear O2. Some cars take a 3rd one, to move the O2 even farther away from the exhaust.

Several companies out there sell pieces that electronically beat the rear O2's. Anyone have any experiences with parts like that? Makes for a cleaner install.

If I owned the gym that this guy works out in, I'd charge him 10.00 if he wanted to talk to the other customers, 15.00 if he wanted to look at the women, 25.00 if he wanted to use his cell phone in the gym, he'd have to wear an rfid band and I'd charge him a buck a step and a buck for every rep!

Here's a sample photo of the sparkplug arrestor (aka: anti-foulers) installed on a different vehicle just for visual reference:

About to have Kooks installed...

Grip Grip,

This looks like something to think about, considering cost to try. Anyone else use this on their secondary O2 sensor ports and get favorable results?

Recommend any other install pointers other than clearing the second to permit flow and tightening both before installing on the O2 port?

Thanks

I haven't seen anything for the Jeep yet. I have had a rear O2 sppof on my Grandprix for five years now. It is a little black box (.5"x.25"x1.5") that plugs into the factory plug. No muss, no fuss.
