Question Does an ORP make exhaust smell?

I'm fixing to get an ORP for my SVTF and have a quick question....will the ORP make my exhaust smell differently? I would think so, but not 100% sure. Anyone with one let me know.

As for the people who want to complain that my car "will polute like 25 cars", I don't drive my focus everyday...maybe only two times a week.

Like butt... A cop could tell really easily if you've done something as serious as taking out the Cat... easy write-up for him. And they sound like fart anyways... get a HFC!

It's going to smell alot different, lol. But hey, if you don't have intelligent cops in your area, go for it! I don't have money for a ticket right now eventhough our cops are complete idiots. Plus I don't wanna lose any low end torque. If it wasn't for that, I'd be running one, I don't care about the environment, lol

With the ORP the exhaust fumes will be very strong, enough to burn your eyes a little when you stand back there and enough to be noticed by cars that are around you at a light (cops). That's probably my biggest complaint with the ORP is the fumage. I roll with my windows down most of the time and at a light it smelled horrible. Great piece for the track where a super rich smelling exhaust can be appreciated as a sign of performance but for daily driving, no thanks.

I live in Alabama and the cops here don't care about that kind of stuff. I don't drive it everyday anyways. The smell thing is getting to me though. I plan on setting the car up to be street/strip...getting nitrous here in the next month or so , so I might just get the ORP anyways, but am still 100% unsure about it.

Keep the comments coming.

Yes to the question Rich unburnt fuel smel.

On the statment about polution. I think it would depend on the 25 cars. Maybee 25 Toyota Prius or 1 Fords Excursion hauling a 100 lb woman and a ten pound pocketbook.

Well SVTMonkey seems to think that removing the cat off one car polutes like 25 other ones....whatever. If one person drives an Excursion daily, I can drive my focus a few times a week with no cat.

I really do want one, but don't know if the little hp is worth the rich smell of fuel.

i love that smell. we race 600cc microsprints. the smell of the track and all the alcohol cars is just fantastic. try standing behind an alcohol car and smell the exhaust. it will burn your eyes real quick, and i love it!!! but to stay on subject, im def. wanting to get the ORP as soon as my taxes get back. with the ORP comes SCT and TB
