i wouldnt expect or dare even ask the above however! i have (very rarely) heard of some peoples passing as theyve taken it in after getting it really hot (i.e a thrashing beforehand)

although the reality of it is it probably wont happen and you mayaswell just put the cat back on

In an ideal world a saxo wouldnt need a cat to pass. IF it was running perfect etc.... cats are almost a security measure in most cases.

ive heard of saxos passing with a de-cat. im sure a lad on here said his did. haha and dont offer an extra 10er to MOT to pass you will get laughed at. if u rekon its guna fail you should jsut fit the cat back onto it.

no its illegal.

Only way it could pass is if the engine is running mint and really hot to knock the emissions down, may scrape through.

But my VTS when it was in its prime with the Cat in wasnt far off failing.

god knows, rather have a genuine one knowing my car was nice and safe to drive.

Fair enough little things but such things as fucked suspension are a no no for me.

Puts others at risk.

Atm I am looking for a garage to fit my raceland manifold onto my car which would effectively de-cat it. I was thinking..... is it possible to fit the mk1 standard VTR exhaust system with the cat included, onto my mk2 when the olde MOT comes around

My 32k mile VTR failed the emissions test with no CAT in... it wasn't a million miles away but still failed.

You can do mate, yeah - saves swapping the manifold over.

I really find it hard to believe that cars or saxos have got through MOTs with no CAT. This is because I have seen what a car needs to put out to pass and what it puts out with no CAT.
