but they technically cant test it as its not a Controlled Area.

Jamie...just come in the back way lol in past McDs rather than Tesco.

Also...Decat = MOT Failure, Insurance Void as well as being done for having a non roadworthy car?

interesting then i stand corrected on the MOT part....however if its decatted the Insurance Company will still see that as a mod then?

EMISSIONS TEST WITHOUT CAT

Is it a reqirement for a car to be fitted with a catalytic converter if is was original equipment. I have a 1994 Saab turbo which is currently running with a 3" front exhaust ipe(non-cat). Provided my car can meet the emisions levels required for the age of the vehicle am I correct in assuming that the presence of the 'cat' is not a necessity? - Mike Stevens
There is no necessity to have a catalytic converter on any vehicle. However, your vehicle will be MOT Tested as if it had one and it is unlikely that it will pass the emissions part of the MOT without the cat. The reason being that the engine and the catalytic converter were all part of the same integral design to meet the emission requirements when the vehicle was manufactured - MOTT.


Also thought this might interest you..


EXHAUST NOISE

What is the criteria for failing cars with modified exhaust systems producing more noise than the standard system? Do MOT testers have access to noise meters? - Micky
No, it is a matter for the Tester to decide whether or not the vehicle is producing excessive noise - MOTT.

best thing to do is use loads of redex just before u take it for an mot and on ur way 2 the garage boot fuk out of the car and u will get a very low emissions, my pals m plate corsa was decatted and he used the redex trick and the guy at the garage said he had never seen a cars emissions so low even on the newest of cars lol

yes it is classed as a modification and insurance company would need to be notified.

right to clarify then....

as far as MOT a catalytic convertor ISNT required? although you can still fail on emissions and say...noise level?

u cant fail anything for noise, although u can just keep getting fined and given an asbo. i almost got 1 for my golf but i was trading it in 2days later anyway so i didnt care.

aslong as the emissions test is passed u can do whatever u like to the exhaust system Very Happy
