    Default DE CAT MOT failure?

    Is this already a test failure? Speaking to a few friends that have civic's and they seem to think that DE CAT's are already a failure. Is this true? I thought it was emissions.

    Sure it is just that, until next year when not having a cat will be an MOT failure.

    It isn't just now, but I personally don't believe the MOT changes next year either as it was conviently posted around April 1st.

    Talking of MOT changes it may be that the government extends it from the year interval to two year intervals and new cars will have one after 4 years. Also if the car is tens and older then it will be every year. It is not certain if this is what will happen though - think its just an idea.

    Leave your system intact, I just knocked the guts out of the cat part and then re-assembled so it looks as standard. If you dont have loads of black smoke it should pass as normal.
