(engine rebuilt about 4 years ago)
I live in Toronto, Canada where we need an emission test every 2 years.
I did the emission test last year, and passed, but not by much. My mechanic said I would need to change my catalytic converter to pass the test next year. I can afford to change it now, but need a second opinion as to whether changing the catalytic will improve my results compared to
last year. Here are the results from last year:
ASM 2525/CURB IDLE TAILPIPE EMISSIONS RESULTS:
ASM 2525 TEST====================== CURB IDLE TEST
Limit--- Reading--- Result=====Limit ReadingResult

NO ppm--757583PASS=======N/A N/AN/A
RPM 1988 VALID =====RPM ---0781VALID
Dilution -14, 73 VALID =====Dilution 14, 21 VALID
Can anyone interpret these results?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
