    Default removing center and cat on standard exhaust with straight pipe???????? pls look

    Hey guys just been thinking about removing center and cat from my 1.9cdti 120 exhaust and fitting a straight pipe that bolts in so can be swapped on mot day. What do people think? It's just till I can afford my stainless system also going to fit twin exit backbox off 2.2

    So will all this be possible and straight forward?

    Cheers people

    it will go through the mot even with all boxes removed, even with the new rules as they only apply to vehicles that are subject to a full emission test, in other words, not diesels

    Cool I wasn't 100 percent with these new rules.
    So just remove them and weld in a straight pipe yes?
    Just if I can do this rather than a stainless system It would be cool as have.to spend pennies on the house
