ROBO wait! If you are running high NOX then you are running lean. The O2 and cat will cause it to run rich. You do need to look at the cat and O2 if they were damaged but the O2 will cause a rich condition usually. Check and replace the O2 sensor and while you are at it check your fuel pressure. 31psi idle and 39 psi with the vacuum line pulled from the fuel regulator.
Was juat told the cat was all rusted up inside and that I let the jeep sit too long is the cause. I only drive it on thw weekends and it sits a lot. They are putting the O2 sensor on now and then retest..
The cat could be the issue. The rail pressure is under the hood on the injector manifold. You get a guage from the local parts store. The big ones have tool lend programs that allow you to borrow a tool for a job by putting down a fully refundable deposit. Post back if the Cat and O2 sensor doesn't fix it.
The pressure test will help you figure out if you are getting to much to little or the proper amoiunt of fuel. Its a big peice to the puzzle. As Que pointed out. High NOx is normally from a lean condition. I think an engine running hot can cause this as well. How is your temp?

[QUOTE=Overhead;17658665]this is also my second set of RC springs this year. I'd rather spend the money again and get something that will last.[/QUOTE]
OK.... The Shop Did not check fuel pressure.... Kept saying that has nothing to do with it... I insisted and still no.. So I left...
The NOx would be perfect in the 200-300 range and then when RPM's come up around 1300 they shoot way up to 2400-3500.
The engine runs smooth.... No issues but when at idle it does have a slight miss.
Work done today is:
New Cat Converter
New O2 Sensor
Drained and flushed Radiator
Added Seafoam to fuel and filled up with Super Unleaded
Ran 3 Tests and all failed way bad...
Not looking good...
Even the tech doing the test was amazed that it runs so good and still will not pass.
They are telling me that I need to clean my intake out due to carbon.... Would not be a LEAN issue then...
I will check on a fuel pressure gauge in about an hour..
