    removing cat's

    if the main cat is fully removed, but the sensor stays, would there be any running problems?also in the future the pre-cat's going to go.

    ps MOT is not a problem..

    Your emmissions warning light will be illuminated.... Car may go into limp home mode and stop emmissions checks will earn you a fine and the mot station will get shut down... Due to the new MOT's, everyone I used to know does not do them anymore... :-(

    I was talking to a bloke at CS and he said that on occasion the light will come on, however disconnecting the battery will cure it. I have the main cat removed and have not had any problems at the moment but will find out when i get my new front pipe. surely the MOT centre would not get closed down if a car was pulled for the emissions as they cannot be held responsible after the car has left.
