hi, i have a 1.4 16v sri with the 2lt redtop engine in it, it has a ashley motorsport manifold, but i need to mot my car and was just wondering what cat should i be getting put on as its a straight through pipe just now. if any one knows
not which car it came out of i rang vauxhall even they could not tell me the exact year or car mine was in.the only way to tell if its pre cat is the engine number starts 20xe rather than c20xe.but i dout a mot bloke will check its so tight do there.
well its still a 1.4 on the log book and the engine is in a 95 car, but when i had to get spark leads for it it was the older version i needed, so its quite a early engine in it i suppose, will they still pass me if the engine is a older version or will they just see the car as a 95 and needs a cat on it
it goes on the age of the engine not the car mate i would register it as a 2l tho.the mot tester may query it not being registered as a 2l as well if you do not no him because the mots are linked to the dvla i think.:thumbs_up:
went down to see garage about mot first place said that it couldnt be done and would have to have a cat, so went to the other one he looked up the rules then told me it would be fine not having a cat for the mot as engine is pre 91 so got it booked in their for new week
cheers for the help
