    Default Emissions with power increase

    Bit of a random one but would my car still pass its MOT emissions test if the engine power was increased? I am considering the Klassen Opel MHI TD05 turbo with larger injectors and the Courtenay downpipe, sports cat, intercooler and the sachs clutch.

    If your replacement cat has sufficient capacity, it shouldn’t be a problem

    Ps.: remember an upgrade of the Haldex while you are at it. If it is stock, big power will destroy it for sure

    Thats great, cheers. I could just picture going to Vauxhall for its first MOT and failing on emissions after all that work was carried out.

    Ha ha, yes the infamous Haldex. Will look at TMS for the upgrade if i take that leap.
