Do I need the CAT in the exhaust to get the car through the MOT, :Last year I am sure that as it was an import that as along as it came within a certain level it was OK, but I was told by a mate that all cars from 93 onwards had to have one..? I need an MOT in the next two weeks and I cant find my CAT ( so to speak)

Here pussy pussy... ( before antone else gets in there )

Skyline owners.com should buy a Cat pipe and just rotate it for MOTs. :D

Hi i asked my mate this as he's the MOT QC at bells volvo and this was his reply:you can't fail a car with no cat on it unless it fails the emissions test but he also said that a car that has no cat on it when there should be will run higher emissions and also will be unlikely to be as tunable (in regard to adjusting emissions) so it will be likely that if the car isn't kept in a good state of tune it will fail the emissions test without the cat and a decat pipe is perfectly acceptable as a cat replacement again as long as it can pass the emissions test.

im still a firm believer in the fact a Power FC car with a commander can get through the emissions tests by changing the values on the controller for your Mot Test only.

Venners is right if u can pass the emmisions without one all is fair & well.
But the law is that all cars from 1st aug 1992 must have cats , or run within the scale of emmisions.
I have tried it before and have always had 2 put cat back on.

regards

I didn`t need a cat to get mine through, if they are sceptical about the emissions explain to them that its an import and the exhaust system was on the car when purchsed, that should work!

Well, I put the cat on at the weekend and it went for an MOT today and passed, but only just due to the emissions even with the cat on it was borderline.. still a ticket is a ticket so I am legal for another year..

AppleJack,

Good to meet you last Saturday @ Richards WS.
Please to see it got through the emissions test, even though it was borderline. :)

I'll be interested to see if mine gets through in November... All I need to do is find a CAT for it before then!

Cheers,
