    Default Is my car decatted??

    Hi all another query for you, my car is due an MOT soon and wanting to figure out if it's fully decatted or wether it's just had a Precat delete. Is there anyway of knowing without getting underneath the car lol. If anyone knows anything let me know. Thanks in advance for your help

    Ok well MOT is booked in for today. So I guess I'll find out one way or the other. It does pop and bang a fair amount but it isn't as loud as some I've seen and heard in the past. Hopefully it's just the Precat and then it should pass. Fingers crossed lol

    Yeah either that or find a friendly tester. Pm me if anybody knows of one in the midlands preferably Derbyshire. Don't mind travelling

    If he has large bore system he won't be able to use the TX one.

    It's a pain in the butt I know. I just went through this. My cat was knackered and failed so I had a new one welded in at my local tuner. Tbf the job was spot on and the new cat made it chuck out next to nothing in emissions . And all for 300 welded and fitted.

    And that included the mot too.

    the 'burg went in for an MOT a couple of weeks ago and the guy had to run the emissions test 4 times to get mine to pass

    I've got a feeling it won't pass next year - either that or i need to get the cat nice and hot before it gets tested!
