    Exhaust & MOT advice

    just a quick question really

    MOT is due end of next month and my current exhaust is rusting away.

    so decided upon a miltek cat back mailny cause everybody raves about them and seeing as tho i need a new exhaust anyway, i think the time is right

    but

    is it ok with the emissions etc etc.
    does the zorst come with a cat??? or will i need to get a new one
    if i need a new one wud a sports cat b the better option

    cheers in advance

    So long as it's "CAT BACK" you'll be fine. In fact, so long as your exhaust isn't blowing and the hangers haven't broken then rust doesn't come into it.

    A new system won't come with a cat by the way.

    Acat back wont come with a new cat and it will fit fine with your standard cat it comes with a reducer part to fit it as a sport cat is a bit larger



    NO RISK NO FUN

    most places wont bother if it hasnt got a cat, aslong as it passes the smoke test. my mates got a FTO with a flame kit on (he taken his cat off) and he passes every year with out any problems

    Thats because it's a jap import and the emmision data isn't available.

    If you have a 'cat-back' system, and as long as it isnt excessively noisy, you will be fine. End of story
