I have been building a kitcar for the past 6 years, taking my time, building it to a high standard and just enjoying the build as much as i look forward to driving it.
I recently found out that the SVA test is being scrapped so i need to get it tested asap to ever get it on the road.
The application went in today (closing date is friday!)
On the application they wanted the age of the engine for emmisions testing.
The engine was removed from a H reg Calibra a few years ago. I never had the V5 as it was getting stripped b y someone else and i just wanted the engine. I have a receipt for the engine but no proof as to its age
It has 90 stamped into the cam casing when you look in the oil filler and the engine number starts 20XE
According to my research the 20xe was superceeded by the C20XE in '92.
I NEED to prove the engine is pre 1995 and doesn't need a cat, or they will have to test it to the latest standards.
If anyone works in a dealers and is happy to do me a letter head stating that an engine with 20XE stamped on it is deffo a pre 95 engine then i would be mucho grateful and will cross your palm with beer tokens.
I am pretty desperate as my test will be coming up in a few weeks and i need to take proof to the test so that they test it correctly.
Thanks in advance and i'm sure someone will be able to help.
More than one would be really good and make my case easier to plead with him.
I have tried contacting GM direct, but they want the chassis number which i don't have and cannot get. They are generally unhelpful when i call.
