I mean, they're all different lengths, etc. - can we get some product testing before they just bend some metal and sell it to us? It's frustrating...
I have about 500 miles on my Vibrant RH with angled defouler. No CEL's. I would get the one that is sold on ebay. It is similar to the one I bought from Excelerate.

UPDATE:

I put the eBay angled defouler on my Vibrant RH w/HFC last night. I drove to work this morning (~25 miles) with no cel.

Keep in mind, I went ~300 miles with NO defouler and had no issues. I put the defouler on because I didn't like how close the O2 sensor was to the undercarriage.

Anyway, it fit great and gave me about another 1-1.5" of clearance

UPDATE: I'm now at ~300 miles on my eBay defouler with my VRH w/HFC. Still no CEL, looks like this is another solution for those of us Vibrant folks.

Yeah, I'm at a little over 400 miles now, after adding the Weapon R defouler, and still no CEL. After getting a CEL every 19 miles, this has been the best $50 I've put into my car.

Hey Keith, glad to hear your defouler is working out for you. I know you were fine w/o it, but it still gives peace of mind, knowing that you won't have to deal with the dreaded CEL anytime in the future.

Yup and knowing that my O2 sensor wires wont get smashes to pieces on the undercarriage is nice too!

On a side note, my buddy is boosting his RSX and trying to talk me into supercharging the Si...oh boy..

weird thing just happened. Since i have been SC'd, I had a CEL for about 1000 miles. I crank up the car to go home, and there is no CEL. I drove it 20 miles to my house and still no CEL. what gives? I didnt change anything in the past 600 miles? should I be worried? its kinda weird for it to just go away. hopefully it wont come back. BTW its a BCRH w/ a Blox defouler.
