MOT

Time for the dreaded MOT.

Indigo 16V conversion S2

I have a straight through Kam Racing exhaust on at the moment, and i know for a fact the emissions tester will go off the scale. And none of the MOT garages are sympathetic with youngsters.

Whats my best bet? get a standard 206cc exhaust? cut and weld a cat in?

Any comments greatly appreciated.

Cam.

Standard exhaust would be a good plan - breaks down quite small if you want to keep it for next year.

A super cheap cat would probably do this year, but I'd be surprised if it does a 2nd - I did the same and at the 2nd test it was laughably low.

This is always a tough call when it comes to MOT time, personally i would invest in a standard exhaust just for MOT or buy a sports Cat that can be replaced with a cat replacement pipe. LONGLIFE or equivalent exhaust company can modify your pipe so when it comes to this time every year all you have to do is remove 4 bolts and pop the cat in.

I've been through 2 (Northern Ireland) MOT's so far with a pugsport with dummy cat and nothing has been said. As long as your emissions are within spec.

An S2 without a cat won't even come close to passing without one. An early S1 might if it's before the cutoff for the stricter emissions.

Mines a 1996, I'm not sure when the stricter emissions set in.

92 on, though non cat cars built before and registered after are ok, unless they were registered as having a cat

Cheers for the replies guys, gonna go for the standard exhaust and a cat and probably leave the exhaust on as its a bit noisy now the novelty has worn off.

Appreciate it all,

Cam.
