I'v fitted an induction kit into my 1.6 focus about 2-3 months ago and now im stuck with 20MPG and a broken Cat converter!

Its a completly shielded cone and cold air is going into it!

i dont have a decent exaust system on it yet...

are my problems my induction?
Induction increase air flow and probably confused the air flow sensor. This tends to cause a lean running engine but as the cat is dead it suggests it was running rich so the injectors must have been compensating for this or perhaps a sensor was knocked and damaged when the IK was fitted. I would go for a panel filter on this engine.

Engine swap wise there is the Cosworth 2.0 route or somthing from the ST stable.
