    ebay. I got a raceland or hottuning one for 140 quid delivered brand new. As for the emissions Ive been running with a decat for 3 years and never been pulled and for that matter I dont know of anyone who has. All you need is a dodgey emissions test on the MOT which 90% of places will do for a cheeky few quid
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    normal traffic cars dont carry the equipment so they would have to call out a VOSA tester to come and check the car, wasting my time and theirs. The results of the mobile testing kit arent as accurate as a MOT station one so often the evidence doesnt stand up and due to cost cutting only 4 authorities are currently doing any roadside emissions testing and even these authorities use roadside emissions reaults as a guide where if you fail you have to go to a MOT centre for a proper check. None of the 4 areas testing are anywhere near me and I have several people who can sort me out a nice emissions reading so even if I did go to one of the areas and happened by freak chance to be stopped it still wouldnt be an issue
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    get a sports cat if youre bothered about the emissions test malarky. Same gains etc, the only reason I didnt get one was the price. The way I look at it is if eveyone gets a decat we might actually get a hot summer so I encourage as many people as possible to do it
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    you can get them thru regal and courtenay but not sure on the prices. Last time I checked they were ~£350 ish which IMO isnt value for money with the performance gains you get. They pop up on ebay and the for sale bit on here every now and again too so keep your eyes open
