    Trim : sport

    Engine : 1.9 z19dth

    Year : 2005

    Default new mot regulations?

    does anyone know wether the new 2012 mot regulations actually affect those who have had their dpf filters removed and mapped out?
    thinking of having mine done but until i know its ok to do its going to be pointless ,ive asked a few people i know but nobody knows for sure ,cheers

    So long as it passes the emissions
    However ask at a MoT station (that you don't use) if they now check a DPF is fitted, where it should be

    As a 2005 Vectra C, why does yours have a DPF?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : Y22SE

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 100,000

    I'm a MOT tester and as long as it passes it emissions it should be ok, have you tried regenerating it? by taking it for a good thrash up the motorway??? for 30-40 miles??? as if your not doing the mileage they do tend to clog up quite quickly. it does'nt say on the MOT computer if the vechile was fitted with one at the factory so when they log on, too put in the details of your car it should'nt really matter. So if you want to take it off and have it remapped then go for it. use a replacement down pipe off a SRi and nobody will be able to tell the diffrence if you ask me!
